Get a Bruce type anchore 2kg would do 5kg would be over kill but you will sleep well + 5 metres of chain put out 3 to 5 X water depth that it will be at high tide, think about how it will swing around as you do not want it hitting something as the tide changes! Swim in and enjoy having a beer looking out on you rib happy it isn't going anywhere

Anchoring at this beach for an overnight stay?

Not always practical or convenient in a small boat but another way of keeping an Anchored boat away from the beach or harbour wall if the waters deep enough is to suspend or dangle deep a heavy weight from the anchor line though it must dangle & not touch the bottom so needs deepish water for it to work proper & doesent work of long gently shelving beaches .
Another advantage it helps keep the angle or catenary of the anchor line more horizontal with the sea bed & helps dampen wave action Causing a Snatching action on the anchor making it hold better

Yep I have a nice 10kg weight I use for this in the past, haven't been bothered with it of late as having to lug it around is a pain
