Sand is a resource found in the Shipwrecked DLC. Sand can be obtained by digging Sandy Piles found on the Beach biomes with a Shovel. Each use of Shovel will yield one pile of Sand, and full size Sandy Piles can be dug twice. Sandy Piles regenerate over time, making Sand renewable. Sand is an important resource early in the game, as it is required for crafting Chimineas, and Sandbags, which are structures that greatly help in surviving Hurricane Season and Monsoon Season respectively. It can also be used to craft a Sand Castle, which helps restore Sanity. Sand can also be refined into Empty Bottle.

Strong Winds, which are frequent during Hurricane Season, will cause piles of Sand left on the ground to dissipate.
