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.
