Largest Outdoor Sandcastle in the USA
The sculpture was built in 2013 by Andy Hancock, a local artist who gives lessons on castle building. There’s a bit of help going on here though – the sand used is river sand which has some clay content. Glue and fixative helps hold it together. It’s still very cool. We discovered after we had left South Padre Island that there are about thirty more sculptures scattered around town. Something to see next time!
The sculpture is in front of the visitor center. RVs will fit in the lot if parked by the sculpture. Sculpture 26.08919, -97.16415
