    Sea Bank?

    Hello,

    please, is it possible to use the word "bank" also for the coast? I know that "river bank" is ok, but I am not sure whether I can use "sea bank" or "bank of the sea" and I was not able to find it.

    Thanks, Jitka

    Bank isn't used when talking about the sea. "Shore" would be the usual word.
