The latest trend of 'sand pools' could be right up your street.

A Spanish company called Piscinas de Arena NaturSand is offering the chance to bring your vacation to your backyard.

They're made from reinforced concrete with a coating of compacted sand.

Not only does it give the perfect beach appearance, but it means that it is anti-slip, when wet or dry.So it's perfect for families with little children!
You know that horrible moment when you're on vacation trying to go into the sea, but the sand's too hot to walk on?

The sand layer has a low coefficient of thermal accumulation.

"Our patented sand finish for pools is grainy but solid" said a spokesperson for Piscinas de Arena NaturSand.
via: FacebookWhen speaking to Bored Panda they also added: "It is not made out of loose sand, it’s completely attached to the concrete surface of the pools’ structure with binding agents."
The sand pools can be customized to suit individual's gardens.
