Not recommended. The sand and salt water is just extremely damaging. Even with a full undercarriage wash, the long run oxidation damage is just not worth it.

The worse thing you could do to any vehicle is take it on the beach - the salt will destroy things - rust and corrosion to follow. I've seen so many people out here in California take vehicles on the beach and close to the water thinking it is so much fun - later it becomes a huge regret. I've also seen the same thing when I spent time in Utah and people drive onto the salt flats - absolutely destroys vehicles.
