I've seen sites that suggest as little as 12-15 psi in the tires, but they also say that you have to experiment a bit. Considering the idea is to increase the contact patch, and radials can be really low on air and still look fine, i would think maybe 15 psi.
I do not have any expierience yet with the traction control systems on sand. Wet sand or sand below the high tide line is always better then dry If ehtere is a road so to speak, follow the road as the sand most likely has been compacted.
And there is no shame in getting stuck, as sand can be tricky even for the expert. Thats why you need to carry your own shovel and tow straps. The first question asked will be "do you have tow straps" and you do not want to say no as that makes you look ill prepared.
