Beach. n.s. The shore; particularly that part that is dashed by the waves; the strand.
The fishermen, that walk upon the beach,
Appear like mice. Shakesp. King Lear.
Deep to the rocks of hell, the gather'd beach
They fasten'd, and the mole immense wrought on,
Over the foaming deep. Milton's Par. Lost, b. x. l. 299.
They find the washed amber further out upon the beaches and shores, where it has been longer exposed. Woodward on Fossils.
