Tying off from the stern

Hi,
What's the best way to tie off from the stern of the boat? I think I've seen a few with u brackets attached to the transom. Is this the best way?
cheers

It was after watching videos and seeing photos of people beaching their boats and turning them into the waves .

I guess you can tie on to any cleat or ring that you have on the transom, one technique is to drop a bow anchor and reverse paying out line get to where you can jump offsite of the bow line, and take another line and anchor to the beach with you

Hi pritch,
Many of us make use of the launching wheels in the beach scenario, failing that we do as Spare Rib has highlighted.

Anchor the bow and paddle back to shore and throw a rope around a transom eye
Etc that we take ashore and tie off.
