Travel channel films: Sand masters
If your first response isn't "aww," you have no soul.


This drip sandcastle simply defies gravity. Small figures are perched atop this seemingly floating bridge, creating a picturesque frame around Puerto Rico’s turquoise waters. This is a masterful work of art and engineering.

A temporary urban beach was recently created in the financial district of Manhattan. Artist Matt Long sculpted this 18 ft castle, with pointed towers, curved bridges, and winding steps. It’s glorious, beautifully juxtaposed against skyscrapers in the background.

This 3 week, 55 ton project marked the largest solo project that Long has ever attempted. He has competed in the World Championships of Sand Sculpting four times already, with his highest placing as a runner-up in 2010.
