Sand  is  less  dense  than  water and  cools  up  faster.  Soil  has  like  gaps  between the  particles  which  are  not  good  at  conducting  thermal energy.  Heat  of  water  is  much  greater  than  soil  it  takes more  energy  to  give  the  same  mass  of  soil  to  the  same  temperature.  Dry  soil  will  heat  up  faster  than  water.  Water  is  a  slow  conductor  of  heat  but  it  needs  to  gain  more  energy  than  sand  but  sand  loses  its  heat  more faster.  Water  has  to  lose  more  of  its  energy  than  the sand  has  to  in  order  for  the  temperature  to  go  more  up. The  soil  will  heat  faster  because  it  takes  in more  heat.  Soil  loses  its  heat  much  faster.  Sand is warmer because of what we called land breeze.
