Quicksand Cave is a dungeon in Explorers of Time and Darkness and Explorers of Sky. It is located underneath Quicksand Desert, which in turn is located at the end of Northern Desert.

At the end of the dungeon is the Underground Lake (ちていのみずうみ Underground Lake), which holds a Time Gear and is guarded by Mesprit. During the first visit, Grovyle appears after Mesprit is defeated, stealing the Time Gear.

The dungeon cannot be revisited until after the credits. After clearing Northern Desert in subsequent visits, the player can continue their adventure in Quicksand Cave.
