Welcome to the Sand Sculpture Route 2017

In 2016 Noordwijk and Zandvoort aan Zee are the two municipalities participating in the Sand Sculpture Route. Every year the themes of the sand sculptures are chosen locally.

The sand sculptures in Noordwijk will commemorate the celebration of Noordwijk 150 Years Beach Resort.  And in 2016, the general theme of the European Championship Sand Sculpting in Zandvoort aan Zee is “Icons of Amsterdam”, to emphasize the strong bond between Zandvoort as “Amsterdam Beach” and the City of Amsterdam.

The Sand Sculpture Route is an initiative of the World Sand Sculpting Academy, the participating municipalities and sponsors.
