In honor of today’s holiday — National Sandcastle and Sculpture Day — beachfront resorts all over are hosting fun events that have families getting down in sand. Whether it’s building something big, dining on the sand or just soaking up the sun, celebrate with a day at the beach. Here are four resorts to visit today for National Sandcastle and Sculpture Day:
If you’re on vacation with your family in the Riviera Maya today — or lucky enough to live in the beautiful area of Mexico year-round — be sure to visit the Sandos Playacar, a family-friendly resort that will have a 7-foot sandcastle onsite today. Enter to win a Sandcastle Diploma and Dinner on the beach by attempting to replicate the sculpture with your family. Festive food and cocktails will be served throughout the day at the resort, as well.
The Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa
Visit Hilton Head today and pick up a beach bag filled with everything you need for a day at the beach at the Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa. The resort prides itself for being located on sand that is great for building and sculpting sandcastles. If your family doesn’t want to spend a day in the sand, they can enjoy decorating sand dollars, making sand art and eating sand candy at the resort all day long.
CasaMagna Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa
Located along the beach in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, the CasaMagna Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa is both luxurious and family-friendly. Pick up your complimentary pale, shovel and everything else you will need to build a sandcastle at the resort today before heading to the beach. A Sandcastle Building Contest will take place today, too!
Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort
Located on a swimmer-friendly beach in Los Cabos, the Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort knows that sandcastles are part of the fun in the sand. Watch a sculptor create a customized event insignia into the sand and enjoy pirate-themed events on the beachfront property today — all in honor of National Sandcastle & Sculpture Day!
