fun in the sun


Learn to sculpt mini-mansions and masterfully craft castles out of sand with help from a professional sandcastle coach. These fun, 2-hour long lessons are held in either the morning or evening when the sun is less intense. The sandcastle coach supplies all the tools and equipment you’ll need to craft a masterpiece. Enjoy time on the beach with your loved ones and learn skills you can use for years to come.


Please note this experience is only available at our Emerald Coast destinations, which include Destin, Miramar Beach, the communities of 30A, and Panama City Beach.
