Build Your own Myrtle beach Sandcastle



In 2007 it was built World's Tallest - Myrtle Beach Sandcastle. Measured 49.55 feet in the air with a base of more than 90 feet, that's over 300 truck loads of sand.

Myrtle Beach is very proud to held a title of this astonishing castle.

Sandcastle competitions are exciting family friendly events that take place at the beach. It's a wonderful and easy way to create some sculpture from your imagination and have plenty of fun with your friends or family.

Myrtle Beach provides some of the most luxurious and family friendly resorts, such as Avista Resorts

Main ingredients are sand, water a little bit of creativity and you ready to start your own sandcastle.

If you just playing around you don't need a lot of fancy gear, but if you planing to build something nicer few simple tools could be very useful.

Long handled shovels are really handy when you move a lot of sand, bucket and spray bottle full of water, that would help to wet the sand and keep it compact so it will not fall apart while you build it.

Few plastic tools like spoon, knife or fork will be good while you working on construction, old paintbrushes are excellent for getting rid of loose sand or unwanted marks. Okay you have few tools now and decided what you going to build, so let's do it!
Choose a spot about 20 feet of the high tide line, you don't want to loose your sandcastle when water rise up, but if you go to far away the sand is too dry.

Pour a large pile of sand and start sculpting from the top that way it will be easier to work around. You want to make sure to wet the sand so it would be easy to manipulate, but not too much, it should be solid enough to keep some shape. Now it's all depend on you - have unlimited fun building your sand sculpture.

Molds are good for simple structures but the sand is not tight enough after you turned over out of bucket and most likely not strong enough to support another layer on the top.

Also try sand dripping technique, a lil different from traditional sandcastle building, all you have to do is add some extra water to sand to make it wet like a mud. Then steadily drip that mix and make some interesting looking castles.

There are plenty of seashells in Myrtle Beach to decorate your completed sculpture. Sandcastles are the perfect way to show off your creativity skills and at the same time to spend a day at the beach. Never stop dreaming, build your Myrtle Beach sandcastle.
