4x4 beach vehicle

Hi. My wife, son and I are renting a condo about 9 miles north of the paved road in the 4x4 carova beach area. We have a 2008 jeep compass 4x4 and a 2010 Honda crv. I was just wondering if anyone could help me out on which vehicle to take. We would like to take the Crv. I was wondering if anyone has taken a Crv on this beach what kind of results they had . Thank you.

Take the Jeep. 4 wheel drive is better than all wheel.

i just went out on sunday and the guy who took us to see a house said he does NOT recommend CRVs. he's the guy that pulls people out of the sand for one of the rental companies and he said that he sees them get stuck all the time.

Seen more AWD stuck than anything. They just don't do sand well.
