I've used light brown sugar for sand before and thinned buttercream colored blue with piping gel to make is shiny for water.

You can also use crushed up vanilla wafers for the sand with a little brown sugar added.

For the sand I used light brown sugar, graham crumbs and added a little gold sparkle dust to it.
