Characteristics of Beaches
First offshore bars, which help protect the beach from corrosions. Other beaches are sometimes made with cobblestone.
Facts about beaches
The world’s largest pleasure beach is Virginia beach, it’s 45 Km.
Waves crashing against the shore can weaken cliffs and cause some to fall in to the beach.

Difference between Plains and Beaches
Beaches have an ocean near it and it has salt water in it.Beaches are sandy and have dunes.Sand is bigger on the Dune.
Plains are basically plain.It is related to deserts.Plains can be found near valleys.It has grass and that’s it.

The grass turns yellowish during winter.
Plains are called plains because well… it’s just plain.

Plateaus are also formed when magma in the earth pushes upward but does not push through the crust.
