Are you allowed to hand set in beach volleyball?
Yes, you can overhand set the ball on the beach just like you do in the indoor game.
The question is "Should you hand set in volleyball or should you bump set the ball to your partner?"
But overhand setting is definitely the hardest.
Your first challenge when learning this skill is to combine
While training with pro beach volleyball women Nina Matthies and Elaine Roque, I had to learn that until I got my "sand legs" (which happens when your leg muscles are strengthened by consistent exercising in the sand) if I set the volleyball on the run while trying to use my hands, I was increasing my chances of being called for a throw or a lift because I hadn't developed yet,
needed to have my body completely positioned underneath the ball to deliver a clean overhand volleyball set.
For girls and female volleyball players transitioning from the indoor game to the beach it takes some time to develop your "sand legs".
This was one of the beach volleyball tips that took me a little while to get used to but I learned it thankfully at the beginning of my career.
While I was consistently training in the sand which would help me develop my leg strength, I still needed to be able to perform beach volleyball skills in a way that would allow me to gain maximum control of the ball without making unforced errors.
This should be your goal too!

I share alot of individual, partner and easy-to-do volleyball serving drills we do in class with my followers.
Many of these volleyball practice drills you can do at home by yourself or try at your next practice with your teammates.
If you're a B team or JV player trying to make varsity next year...your goal should be to complete 1000 reps a day of at least three of the basic skills on your own...volleyball passing, serving and setting should be at the top of the list.
