The International Antalya Sand Sculpture Festival (Sandland) features many gigantic sand sculptures, each year based on a different theme, the theme for 2015 is "The 7 Wonders of the World", the event runs from 16th May till 15th December 2015.
Hundreds of sculptors from across the world create magnificent works of art from thousands of tonnes of sand on the world famous Lara Beach, Antalya.
A great day out for adults and kids alike with cafe's and refreshments on site and being on the beach, also at the site are a kids playground and sand castle building pit and an ATV safari as well as the normal range of beach amenities.
One piece of advice is to try to time your visit to coincide with twilight, the sculptures really take on a different, almost ethereal quality after sundown so if you can experience them in the daylight then lit up at night with the deepened shadows, well you can see in the gallery below what I mean.
