Why does sand tends to get hotter than water?

I'm sure this isn't the question you intended. Sand gets hotter than water if more heat is applied to sand than to water. Or it can get hotter if there is less sand to heat than water. You may have meant to ask why it takes more or less heat to heat sand than water? If that is so, please rephrase your question and repost as an answer to this reply. First, though, look up the specific heat (or heat capacity) of water and of sand and post those, if you cn find the data, along with the rephrased question.
