Castles in the Sand

Island Retreat hosted a sand sculpture lesson on the beach in front of mile marker number 10 during Mother’s Day weekend.  There were ten units that were occupied from different families. One of the families was from Brazil who had just moved to Austin and it was their first time to stay with Island Retreat. The property manager, Selina Arriaga, had a wonderful time visiting with the different groups of families and watching the parents and children come together building sand sculptures. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. With just 20 minutes of instruction and some hands-on help, you can be stacking sand and carving towers, stairs, arches, walls and rocky cliffs. If you need any more information about the services being offered, feel free to call the Sand Castle guy (Mark) at 361-290-0414 or visit the website at  We hope to see more families come out and join us throughout the summer!

Complimentary lessons will be avilable to Island Retreat guests at times throughout the summer.  Click here for dates.
