word origin
c16: perhaps related to old english bæce river, beck²

1530s, “loose, water-worn pebbles of the seash-r-,” probably from old english bæce, bece “stream,” from proto-germanic -bakiz. extended to loose, pebbly sh-r-s (1590s), and in dialect around suss-x and kent beach still has the meaning “pebbles worn by the waves.” french grève shows the same evolution. beach ball first recorded 1940; beach b-m first recorded 1950.

“to haul or run up on a beach,” 1840, from beach (n.). related: beached; beaching.
the area of acc-mulated sand, stone, or gravel deposited along a sh-r- by the action of waves and tides. beaches usually slope gently toward the body of water they border and have a concave shape. they extend landward from the low water line to the point where there is a distinct change in material (as in a line of vegetation) or in land features (as in a cliff).
