Pecan Sands is a large, pyramid-structured, desert level in Wario World. It is the eighth and final level of the game, as well as the second level of Sparkle Land. In order to reach the top and fight the Ironsider, the player has to climb up the pyramid. The sand around the stage is pouring out of the inside of the pyramid through several stone faces scattered throughout the stage, and the sand pouring out of them will push Wario off the stage if the player is not careful.
Pecan Sands is likely named after the famous Keebler snack "Pecan Sandies", which are shortbread cookies with pecan nuts in them.
The player starts off in a sand stream which drops into an abyss. On the way forward, Mummies will spawn out of the sand. At the end of the sandstream is an enemy generator and some Club Mummies. Up ahead is a stone ramp and a lower path through the sand. Going down the sand path will bring Wario into a battle with a yellow Crystal Entity. After defeating it, Wario can proceed into an area with Big Scorpers, a wooden chest, and the yellow treasure button. Back by the stone ramp, the chartreuse treasure button can be found in an alcove. Up the stone ramp is a Mummy Ankiron and a stone face that blows streams of wind. To the right of the stone face is a ledge where the chartreuse treasure spawns. To the left are some Mummies and two more stone faces, with the the yellow treasure's spawn point in front of one of them. Further to the left, there is an arena where a blue Crystal Entity will spawn, but the battle can be avoided by walking around the arena. After that is a "sandfall" with many Glue Globes flowing down it that the player must use to get across. Below the sandfall is an area with many Big Scorpers, Houhou, the red treasure button, and Flying Spades. The Flying Spades can be thrown into the wall behind the treasure button and used as platforms, much like the Monstrous Magnets found in Beanstalk Way. Two small platforms away from the treasure button is a steel trapdoor housing the red Spriteling. The sand path to the right of the Flying Spades leads to a wooden trapdoor containing the yellow Spriteling. Dropping down this ledge takes Wario back to the sand stream at the beginning, where the red treasure's spawn point can be found.
Past the sandfall is a platform with a few enemies, and below the platform is a sand pit with a Sandworm. Unlike the one fought in Greenhorn Ruins, this one only takes four cycles to defeat instead of five, and simply drops coins when defeated. There is a trapdoor near the sand pit with a Gold Statue part inside. To the left is a Big Scorper and a Cyclone Generator. Hitting the Cyclone Generator makes it whip up a cyclone and launch Wario into the air, which is necessary to reach the platform above, which has some enemies and a wooden chest. To the right is a wind-shooting stone face on a narrow path; with a Gold Statue part at the end. To the left are several small sandfalls with Glue Globes, and above them is a trapdoor containing the green Spriteling. On a wall to the left of the sandfalls is the green treasure button; finding the chest requires backtracking to the Sandworm's sand pit. South of the sandfalls is a sandy area with statues, Laser Jigglefish, and a Garlic Dispenser. The cyan treasure button is on the far left of this area, and to the south of it is a steel trapdoor containing a Gold Statue part. A Cyclone Generator on the far right of this area can be used to get back up, though the player can simply use the Glue Globes on the sandfalls instead. Past the sandfalls is a Stone-Cold Statue blocking a ladder. It must be defeated in order to continue. At the top of the ladder is the cyan treasure's spawn point and a large sand slide leading to a Battle Ring. On the way down is a Gold Statue part.
Behind the Battle Ring are two columns, either of which can be used to reach the three platforms between them. The blue Spriteling is on the platform in the middle. To the left of the Battle Ring is the blue treasure button, and to the south of the treasure button are Big Scorpers and a steel trapdoor containing a Gold Statue part. The ladder near the Battle Ring leads to an area with some enemies and a wooden chest. South of this area are two sculptures on a narrow path with the blue treasure's spawn point at the end. To the left of the enemies are five ledges with gaps in between; the one on the far left has a trapdoor with a Gold Statue part inside. Climbing the chain-link fence leads to a Garlic Dispenser and two Houhou. Past here is a sand stream with Big Scorpers and statues in it, with the purple treasure button on the wall. Up ahead is a set of stone steps leading upward with a Gold Statue part underneath. The steps lead to a pair of wind-shooting stone faces with a wooden chest in between, as well as some Houhou. Further ahead is a Laser Jigglefish and a steel trapdoor leading to the final red diamond sub-level, which contains the purple Spriteling.
Beyond the final trapdoor is another sandfall with Glue Globes where the final Gold Statue part is. In front of the sandfall on the right is a platform with the pink treasure button on it. Further ahead and past a Laser Jigglefish is a wall the player needs to use Flying Spades to get over. Three Flying Spades will spawn at a time, but only two are necessary to scale the wall. This brings Wario to the top of the pyramid, where the music becomes quiet. The ByeBye Balloons are in between two columns. The tops of two giant stone faces are on opposing sides. A Garlic Dispenser and the purple treasure's spawn point are on one stone face, while the pink treasure's spawn point is on the other. The ladder leading up to the Stone Doohickey is guarded by a Stone-Cold Statue. Once it is defeated, Wario can access the goal.
If Wario reenters the level after defeating the boss, there will be a set of ByeBye Balloons at the beginning that will take him to the Battle Ring.
