Hi - Just a suggestion...

If you want to get more enjoyment out of your vacation photos, and can live with a few imperfections (which come from editing JPGs, vs. RAW photos), then I suggest trying out Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop. They both contain a plug-in, called Adobe Camera Raw, which is useful for bringing out more detail from the highlights and shadows, as well as other effects.

Here is a sample, using your beach photo:

And also using Adobe Camera Raw will work even better if you shoot your photos in RAW mode, since the RAW photo will contain more details from the highlights and shadows.

Here is a link to Adobe, for more information about how useful Adobe Lightroom can be:

Thank you for the valuable information.  Using Adobe Camera Raw did make quite a bit of difference in the photo... even though it's stored in native JPG.   I have photoshop at home and will have to give it a try.   I notice the Camera Raw did tend to give more contrast/shadow detail to the picture, and also did a good job of cleaning up what appeared to be too much brightness in the beach sand.   With this picture I can now see details in the sand that I couldn't see before.
