I use a pair of waders.
Drop everyone off in the shallows wearing wellies or rolled up trousers or nose up to a rock they can step straight onto and then anchor and use the waders to get in once the boat is offshore.
Don't do this often as I prefer pumping up the tender or at a push putting on a drysuit and swimming in.

Dry suit one of the crew and get them to swim.

I normally bring the boat into shallow water then kick everyone off, push boat into deeper water and anchor and wade ashore, or use the "trot" method.

But you have a line ashore anyway so even if the anchor doesn't hold its not going far. (In a strong on-shore wind you can't use the method described in the link anyway as the boat blows back before getting deep enough).

I don't use this approach when leaving the boat - only if going ashore for a "picnic" or bbq etc and adjust the anchor depth as required.
