Also, see "DESIGNATING A USER WAYPOINT AS AN AIRFIELD" section in the Pilot's Guide.

I want to get rid of the 500ft aural alert, even if I turn volume down , still there.
Is there a way to do this?

I added my airport as an airfield, but I do land on beaches and gravel bars too.

You can designate any user waypoint as an airfield, so create one for you favorite spot on the beach and/or your favorite gravel bar and it will still work.  As chflyer pointed out, the 500ft Callout Aural can be disabled on the User Options page.
