Uploader comment: Can anyone tell me what these are or what made these? Of all the beaches I've lived and played at I've never seen this. It was all up and down the shore line and couldn't figure out for the life of me what caused it. So any help would be awesome!

my best guess would be mole crabs or another burrowing animal

I think it could also be some sort of mussel?

i think they are little crabs that live under the sand... when i went to california my friend and i were at the beach and she was like u see these little holes left behind... u was like yeah and she dug her hand underneath and out came out a very tiny small clear looking baby crab. u can barely see them they r so small. but it was just a hole in the sand not like a whole tower like that... so am not sure if this is a baby crab

I don't know how big the hole are, but from my observation, the ocean wave can create little holes in the soft sand, I think it could have been caused by little whirlpools when the wave comes up, just a theory though

It's clams. Clams make these holes when they come up closer to the surface at the inflow of a wave. It's how clam diggers know where to find them. Muscles cling to rocks, they don't burrow in sand. Sand crabs are another possibility I suppose, but usually it's clams.
