Has anyone taken their Honda PP on the beach? How did it handle on the deep sand like the Jeeps and Trucks

I have.... take the air down to 25lbs, and you are fine. Every vehicle wiggles in the sand, but if you’re worried about coming to a dead stop and then proceeding again, the Passport handles like a champ. I carry a 11lb air tank that I purchased from harbour freight for $40 bucks minus the coupon @ 20%.. I haven’t tried one of those portable air stations you plug in, just seemed to take too long to refill.... the giant plus is the Passport will flash and honk when tires are filled....

Thank you very much for the info. I was considering getting the off road beach pass for next summer and was curious. Thank you for your answer

Thank you for the info. We usually take our LR4 out on the beach but at 6000 pounds it can be prone to sinking in soft sand. But if I drop the tire air pressure to 25 it can drive out of anything. Low gear and locking differentials help too.

Passport should float better in soft sand since it's lighter. And you don't have to worry about the salt air and water rusting out the Passport's frame.

Thanks for the info - Have you done this with the stock tires? (continental cross contacts sports?)

Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach.......
Beach baby, beach baby, give me your hand
Give me something that I can remember
Just like before, we can walk by the shore in the moonlight
Beach baby, beach baby, there on the sand

I realize this is a PP forum but if you're gonna post beach pics then they should also include some dolls.

I drove mine on the beach last spring in Long Beach, Washington. I tried to get it stuck in the sand but failed. I never had to use "sand" mode or lower the tire pressure. I guess our west coast sand is more forgiving!
