I recently went with my family to Cancun. Even though there was bright hot sunlight, the sand was not hot at all. The peopel at our hotel said the sand is never hot in Cancun. But when I go to other beaches in Connecticut or New York or on the east coast, the sand is always hot and burns my feet when I walk on it. I do not understand why there is a difference.
Re: Why is sand hot on some beaches but not others?
