What is the best footwear for taking very long walks on the beach, for a person who needs moderate arch support?

I'm sure this seems like a ridiculous question to anyone with regular access to a beach, but I'm an inlander who has only recently started making summer pilgrimages to the coast, and I've got footwear issues.
I have thus far utterly failed at finding sport sandals that feel like they'd work for me. Last year I simply alternated between barefoot and sneakers. I bought a pair of Chacos, but the arch was way too high and hurt my feet, plus sand got under the straps and abraded my skin. Everything else feels like not enough arch support. I'd really like to be able to wear something more sandal-like, with soft straps, and a more flexible sole. Suggestions?
