Feature: Pereybère's Sand Sculptor

There are many reasons to visit Pereybère's main beach, but one of the more unusual is to witness the extraordinarily skilful sand sculptures of local resident Sanjay Jhowry. Twice a week for the past 12 years, the friendly Sanjay has sculpted sand into the finest of forms, from above-average sand castles to 6m-high masterpieces that take two days to complete. On one day when we visited he had produced a wonderful rendition of the Eiffel Tower. On most days, the tide washes away his handiwork, but ask to see his photo album, which contains the hundreds of sculptures he has created over the years. You can also see some of his work online: www.artonsand.com.
