That looks a lot like Pismo Beach (California) The last time I was there I stayed at a pleasant state owned camp ground called North Beach which is near the vehicular access to the beach. It is not on the sand and it has paved drives and RV hookups.
Vehicles may be driven on the beach for a distance of two or three miles. There is also actual dry camping
on the beach for a fee. Pismo Beach is a state vehicle recreation area which translates to dune buggys and atvs on the beach and in a fairly good size area of sand dunes that go inland for a couple of miles. Many people go there to camp on the beach and ride their sand toys.
I did not try to pull my trailer out there. I did drive my truck then simply unloaded my ATV and rode it. I kept my truck away from the water. I am aware that there is a two or three foot tide at times so getting stuck right at the water's edge does not appeal to me.
The trap people fall
into is there is a strip of sand right along the water that is damp and firm. It is 20 or 30 feet wide. A vehicle barely leaves any tracks. You are lured into driving a mile or two down the beach then it is time to turn around. The sand away from the water is dry and loose as well as deep. I saw more than one person try to keep their drive wheels on the firm sand by backing toward the water when turning around. I used a chain to try to pull one vehicle out with my four wheel drive truck. When you lose traction in sand the spinning wheels quickly dig a hole. I almost got stuck myself trying that. If you keep spinning the wheels the frame of the vehicle rests on the sand. The vehicle I tried to tow was doing that. Getting out usually requires a lot of digging and shoveling and tow vehicle with a tow strap that stretches. The term is called "snatching it out". It is not easy. It is also dangerous to be anywhere around in or out of a vehicle. If the heavy steel hook on the end of one of those tow straps comes loose the elastic nature of the strap will sling it like a shot from a canon. It will easily throw it through a vehicle window. Many people have been hurt or killed that way.
