If you need more gear range, I would recommend sticking with a 1x drivetrain as you have, but go with a chainring between 28-30 and a rear cassette 11-40 or 42. That should get you through the softest sand w/o breaking the bank, maintaining decent chain line, esp. if you stick with 10spd. Lots of used 1x10 drivetrains available on the cheap since 1x11, 1x12, and now 1x13 are the rage. 

After I typed this, Microshift just released a 1x9 drivetrain that goes 11-42 (shifter, rear mech, and cassette) for $125 with a 4 yr warranty which is dope. Slightly cheaper or as cheap as Shimano SLX 10 spd, but 1 less gear and a lighter chain.
