    picturesque place/spot/beach

    1. Mr and Mrs Lee took their sons, Jacky and Jerry, to a picturesque seaside place/spot to have a picnic.

    2. Mr and Mrs Lee took their sons, Jacky and Jerry, to a picturesque bleach to have a picnic.

    For #1, can I leave out place or spot? If not, which word is correct, place or spot?

    For #2, is 'picturesque bleach' correct?

    Many thanks in advance.

    1 No- you'd have 'a ...seaside', which doesn't work. 'Spot' collocates more naturally to me.
    2 Not with the L in it.

    Thanks, Tdol.

    It was a typo. I've amended it.

    For #2, is 'picturesque beach' correct? I would like to make sure I understand you correctly.

    Many thanks in advance.
