    beach, pier, ...

    Could you tell me the difference between
    beach, seaside, (sea)shore and coast
    and
    pier, wharf, dock, quay and jetty?
    I'm mixed up.
    Is it possible to illustrate the difference through pictures?

    Try a picture search on Google. Then, if you need any clarification, you can ask here.

    I admit I don't know the technical difference between many of those either.
