Event organizers point out that the entire event takes place on a sandy beach, which may make it difficult for some visitors to attend. For example, wheelchair-bound visitors may find it difficult to attend the event.

Several competitions are held for the Sandcastle World Championships, including solo, duo and an 80-hour team building competition, where teams build giant sculptures over several days.
