    For a start, avoid changing lenses, but if u really have to, take precautions,

    (1) go somewhere near a shelter or indoors to change lenses, avoid wind/breeze
    (2) once dismount, put the lense to your camera bag/lense bag, and use ur body to cover the lense mount on the camera
    (3) quickly mount new lense, and using ur body to shield again wind/breeze

    lastly, clean up the entire lense barrel/body with little-moist cloth to remove dust/sand/salt/etc, air it a while, then put back into the dry cabinet.

    Also, while on the beach, mount the hood on ur lense, avoid going near bodies of water with kids or pets, avoid shooting into direct sunlight, lastly, go with a happy mood and enjoy shooting near/at the beach.
