Sloppy Sands is the second stage in the Beach world, as well as the ninth stage in Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. It is preceded by Poppin' Planks and followed by Peaceful Pier.


The biggest part of this stage takes place on the ocean shore, where Donkey and Diddy Kong are constantly being attacked by Squidlies and Electrasquids shooting out of turrets. Fortunately, Squidlies can be bounced on to reach collectibles, although Electrasquids which are electric, can hurt the Kongs with one touch. This is also the first stage to feature cannons that the Kongs can pound on to shoot out collectibles and help them find a single Puzzle Piece. Additionally, the end of this stage takes place inside of a tall tower in which the primates must climb by using buckets full of sand as platforms. A green, grassy turf, which covers walls and turning wheels, also helps the heroes climb to the top of the tower. Other than Squidlies and Electrasquids, the enemies in this stage include Snaggles and Snaps.
