Why are some beaches sand seem so much hotter than others?

    The heat of the sand on beaches may have to do with its orientation–is the beach facing southeast or southwest, vs northeast or nothwest. With more direct sunlight, the sand will heat up more. Another factor to consider is the time of day you are visiting the beach. The sand will feel warmer in the afternoon, after it has been sitting in the sun all day, particularly after the air begins to cool some, than it will in the morning after a cool night.
