Grounding on purpose

Hello again all.

I have seen pictures here, and also seen in person, individuals grounding their sailboat on purpose. Some look like they are spending the day/night somewhere, some don't.

How safe is this for the boat (sandy bottom presumed) and are there any suggestions on how to do this safely?

I'm thinking this could be an easy way to get some barnacles off while standing next to the boat!

Fair winds!
