Sand, being sort of an alternate version of Dirt, can be found on beaches all the time, and can be seen with Black Sand near the beginning and ends of oceans, sometimes under.
Desert biomes also have a large amount of sand all around, found with cacti, Prickly Pears, and Scorpions.
They can sometimes be found on sky islands, just like dirt can.
An Electric Press can also convert Gravel into Sand.
