    I found that there were plenty of options for gas/petrol power when trying to get something suitable for my son on the beach (ie quad bikes, ATVs and even a 4WD car), but they were all too powerful and too noisy for what we wanted (and illegal on city beaches where we live!). So I ended up converting a petrol engined go-kart to electric, changed wheels etc, and that works for us. But I agree, it certainly has its limitations in distance, so you really need to carry a spare battery if that's a risk.
