I'm planning to do some beach riding, but just a couple times a year. I don't want to take my new expensive bike and get it all sandy, salty, etc. Instead, I'd like to pick up something cheap - a few hundred bucks. I haven't been able to find anything used but will keep looking.

When I lived at the beach, I used to ride a cheap $100 single speed beach cruiser with 2.25 tires and that was fine but challenging when the sand was soft.

I may also ride this bike a bit with my kids and very light trail riding - if I want a good workout.

I may just go with a Mongoose Malus for $350.

What else should I consider?

After thinking about it more, I actually may go with another cheap beach cruiser and see if I can fit wider tires than 2.25s. It won't be as good in sand, but I won't be riding it on the beach that much. I also wouldn't be able to ride trails with it, but would be fun to cruise around with the kids on it.
