    Default on the beach

    They are playing "on" the beach.
    1. Can we use "at" the beach or "in" the beach?
    2. What are the differences between at the beach and on the beach?
    3. Is in the beach right?
    thank you

    Default Re: on the beach

    I'd use 'on the beach' for the actual area of sand and 'at the beach' fpr a wider area including restaurants, bars, etc. I wouldn't use 'in the beach'.
