Definition of Beach / Shore:
The zone of unconsolidated material that extends from the mean low water line to the place where there is a marked change in material or physiographic form, or to the line of permanent vegetation (the effective limit of storm waves and storm surge), i.e. to the coastline. The beach or shore can be divided in the foreshore and the backshore.
This is the common definition for Beach / Shore, other definitions can be discussed in the article
