Sandcastle builders fail to set Guinness World Record at Playa de Las Vistas


Updated 10 February: 
Sadly, Arona Ayuntamiento has confirmed, in the end, the sandcastle builders couldn’t do it, but it was a brave attempt. The council says that it doesn’t have a firm figure for the number of sandcastles that were built because of the Guinness system of measuring and approving, but it was a close thing. I’m grateful to Tracey Myers for these photos of the event.

Original post 8 February: Arona Ayuntamiento says that there will be an attempt at the Guinness World Record for the number of sandcastles on a beach at Playa de Las Vistas tomorrow Thursday, 9 February, between 5 and 6pm. The current record is 2,500 so this should be some spectacle for those who can go along! A group of around 500 will be attempting to break the record.

    I understand the participants are already organized but I don’t see why a few more volunteer pairs of hands wouldn’t be welcomed!

  3. What was the outcome? Any new records?

    It’s not until tomorrow.

  5. Cool – thanks ?

  6. I would imagine if you have young kids who love nothing more than building and then kicking down sandcastles, might be better to wait until after they have counted them……(lol)
