  • First - this is by the FERRIS WHEEL. We saw a decomposing one but there was a cryptic sign showing the Ferris wheel. We drove there and under a tent was the sand sculptures. They were pretty cool...

  • The visitor center has moved to a new building on the island. This sandcastle was not kept up and is just a pile of sand now. Empty building too.

  • We were pretty excited to see this, especially after reading it had been restored. What a huge disappointment! We drove 6 miles out of our way specifically to see the sand castle and when we got...

  • Talented people made these sculptures, very nice.
  • Because this Sandcastle is outside it has deteriorated. The Visitor bureau there wasn't busy and they gave us a newspaper but we didn't find they were overly helpful. Perhaps it was the end of the day and they were ready to get to the parade that was happening in the evening.
  • It's washed away. I'm sure it was more impressive when it was first done.
  • We visited this place, its makes me amazed how people do it nice! I love the artistic! Not need to pay just donation, I love to be here! It was really good to visit this place while on vaction in South Padre Island. Check it out! :)
  • It was cool. Worth the stop. Its kinda weathered. Just a suggestion maybe mix a little Portland in the top coat. I'm all about authenticity and all. Please take no offense but to stand the test of time it wouldn't hurt. Its still a sand castle with a hint of shale fired in a kiln around 600 degrees Celsius to burn off a little oxygen then mis just a bit with the natural sand maybe 5 to 1 just to help stand the test of time. It was impressive the work and detail put into it.
