If you’re looking for a new vehicle there isn’t much available.  If you are looking for a used vehicle there a few.  Suzuki, Toyota Land Cruiser, and the old Broncos, and Blasers.

Last of the broncos. Prices have been going up on them though. I think 96 was the last year.  

k5 blazer, but your getting even older, I think the last of those was 91 and it would have tbi. 

70s ramcharger, but now your really getting old, a clean driveable one is not going to be cheap.

I'm a jeep guy but I'd go for a bronco. I think engine option were 4.9 straight 6, 5.0, 5.8, I don't really think you could go wrong with any of them. Right now I have a tj, whan we take it in the beach it's usually 3 of us and we really have to pick what to bring, we run out of room quick. I wish I still had my wagoneer.

I know you were looking for ideas other than Jeeps but wanted to say one thing. The new Jk Wranglers are phenomenal ( as all jeeps are) for beach buggy/everyday use. Jeep prices have become super affordable as I picked up my 18’ for under 30k. The way the Wrangler handles the beach is simply incredible and I think if you are a frequent beach driver you can’t go wrong. No stock vehicle (beside Land-cruiser’s) can do what these cars do. It’s a great feeling having zero worries about ever gettin stuck again.  Good luck pal.
