Say goodbye to summer with a sleepover inside a super-sized sandcastle

by Brittani Tuttle

To celebrate National Sandcastle Day on Aug. 19, Booking.com has done it again by creating the ultimate end-of-summer vacation: a stay inside a giant sandcastle just outside of Manhattan.


Constructed from nearly 100 tons of sand, this sandcastle isn’t your typical beach creation. Shaped to reflect a modern mansion, this accommodation offers all the amenities you could need. Guests who book a stay will get to enjoy dinner for two on the Coney Island Boardwalk, sunrise beach yoga, and Luna Park VIP passes.


Standing at 8 feet tall and 18 feet long and wide, this project was overseen by Matt Long, a master sand sculptor whose creations have graced many locations, from the beaches of Southeast Asia to Times Square.

Located at Luna Park in Coney Island, Booklyn, this “Sand”-sion will be available for $29 per night. Guests can book this unique stay starting Aug. 22 at 12 p.m. Eastern, and overnight stays will take place on Aug. 23-24.
