(The article "the" is needed)

The tense is correct: It's the so called "going-to-Future".

The 1st "to" (I'm going TO go to the beach) is part of the following infinitive "go";

the 2nd "to" (I'm going to go TO the beach) is a preposition, expressing movement towards the beach.

Hi,

I'm going to going the beach

No, 'going to' must be followed by the base form of the verb:

I'm going to go to the beach

I'm going to cook dinner

It's not very common to see this kind of sentece: "going to go", but it's not wrong.
Let's just think about the structure that is : to be going to + verb. So, as I say "I'm going to dance." I can also say "I'm going to go to the beach." But as I said, that's not very common, we usually say "I'm going to the beach"

Hope I've helped Emotion: smile
