Use load spreaders or move to more solid terrain with better support capabilities, I presume "dirt" means soil or earth of some sort?

One thing is sand and heavy rigs don't go well together, but if you want to use steel mats like mobile home mover use to insure the rig won't sink when you try to get it moving again it should work, make sure there is enough mats and you will have to keep them in front or behind the wheels to keep the rig on them while getting out of the spot

It depends on the beach.
We boondock on the beach @ Port Aransas every year, for a few days, and the sand is hard. I just level right on the sand. One time i did have a jack punch into the sand. I retracted and moved 2 feet and was good to go. The soft spot must have been someone digging for treasure at an earlier date.
If your tires don't sink in you can level on the sand if they do sink then use weight spreaders (2'X2' plywood).
