    I dont know of any that would do well in the sand tbh.

    When going to the beach I just take my baby jogger city select, or now that bub is older, my maclaren stroller and carry them onto the sand. It's a PITA though, not to mention getting sand out of the seams of the pram.

    The other alternative is to have one of those beach sun protection tents, bring a makeshift bassinet and have bub sleep in there.

    We live on the coast so go to the beach a fair bit, honestly I just bought a really cheap ($30) 2nd hand jogging pram because going on the beach means it's going to go rusty so I wouldn't take an expensive pram there.

    I've got a Phil and Ted sport that's good on sand but I'm not that impressed with the pram itself for the cost of it.

    I'm in the process of pram shopping at the moment and have no experience with prams, but the bugaboo chameleon states that it can be easily adapted to go in the sand/snow and is great for everyday.

    I have tried the jogger pram and the adventure buggy and the strider plus on sand and found them all useless once you get into deep sand. The bike trailer/stroller worked the best and it can carry a lot of stuff, although you still need to pull it rather than push thru the sand unless you want a really good workout lol

    Look at the Bugaboo Buffalo or alternatively use a baby carrier. My preference is the Ergo.

    I got a Phil & ted sport second hand for $100 good condition. Use it for walking the dog and the beach and it does well on the sand.
