Sandy Piles can be found in the Beach biome in the Shipwrecked DLC. Digging them up with a Shovel will yield Sand.

Some other rare drops can also be obtained from Sandy Piles. Those items and their drop rates are:

Mob/Item Chance
Coconut Venom Gland Purple Gem Crabbit Snake 0.1%
Gears Red Gem Dubloons 0.2%
Seashell Rocks Jet Feather Crimson Feather Azure Feather 1%

After they are dug up, Sandy Piles can be destroyed by clicking on them or using the action button near them. They do not require any tools to destroy, although a Shovel will still be required to dig up the Sand beforehand.

Sandy Piles fully regrow after around four days (one tier every two days) during Mild Season and Dry Season. During Hurricane Season, they regrow twice as fast, and during Monsoon Season, they require double the time.

Prototype Tips Edit

  • Players should be careful when digging up Sandy Piles using the action key. After the Sand is dug up, the player character will proceed to destroy the Sandy Pile, if the use button is kept held down.

Placeholder Trivia Edit

  • Sandy Piles used to be indestructible before the update Rev. 189297 on September 1, 2016.
