In sandbox solution you can not create visual webpart directly. for that you have download and install the Visual Studio 2010 SharePoint Power Tools from given link and then you can create Visual WebPart in sandbox solution. [Visual Web Part(Sandboxed)]

I would like to second what eirikb said. Visual Studio 2012 works great for Sandbox Visual Web Parts - I don't have a high enough reputation yet to vote up his answer :( – Ben Stegink Oct 3 '12 at 0:18

After you installed Visual Studio 2010 SharePoint Power Tools for you create a sandbox solutions, you need create a Empty Project, and after add a Visual Web Part (Sandboxed).

I tell this because only install VS 2010 Power Tools not enable this option.
