Can you please help me figure out how to achieve the soft, peachy-pink coloring on the sand and light in the images below?
Usually, my sunsets/sunrises are much more orange and when I try to edit, I end up too pink-reddish.

This answer is: Thoughts on how to shoot sunsets so you end up with the best capture of the actual colors present in the scene BEFORE you do any post production.
The best way to get the "soft, peachy-pink coloring" is to shoot when the colors are soft, peachy-pink.
Every sunset has different colors and qualities.
Shoot dozens of shots of all exposure combinations from very under exposed on up. start shooting early and shoot until colors are gone.( the colors can change rapidly ) Pretty soon you will get a feel for how much under-exposure is needed for rich saturated colors.
The goal is to capture the colors with your camera and not change it with editing.
