Bruce anchor - great on most bottoms and no nasty sharp bits to damage the tubes.
I get away with a 2.5 Kg on my 4.7 rib otherwise a 5kg will certainly do the job.

A 5kg with 5m of chain and an appropriate amount of rope, i.e. 5m. The same anchor you'd use in 30 - 50 foot of water. Why are you speccing an anchor specifically for beach use?
