Sure. Even though it's not as offroad capable as a Jeep, it should be absolutely fine on sand, especially with the fairly wide tires.

Here's a video of an FX offroading with an Expedition.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MujmVfFNv-sObviously not the ideal way to treat your FX, but if it can do that, sand beaches should be a cakewalk.

Agreed, the FX AWD will do fine on sand, as long as you know how to drive it on sand. Here's a link to some pictures on another site I frequent. This guy lives in Kuwait and, as you can see in the pics, his FX handled the sand okay. (I would have posted the pics here, but short of having them hosted somewhere else, I can't ).
