Admiring The Sand Sculptures

The kids’ buckets and spades will have to go some to match the new breed of large, extravagant sand sculptures that adorn many of the main Tenerife resorts. Some visitors are not keen on what they see as a form of begging but the authorities have tried to regulate these impressive artists. Arona and Adeje councils have led the way by making the sculptors register and pay a pre-arranged percentage in the form of a tax. If you look closely you should see a laminated copy of a certificate displayed by the artworks.
