Although any sand on the surface of the world can be considered desert, a proper beach exists because the sand was generated as part of placing the water when the world was initialized. This appears to take the shape of a large, rounded intrusion of sand into the previously existing dirt and stone which is then partially replaced by the slightly smaller body of water, leaving a border of sand. One common characteristic of a beach is underlying dirt.
Golden chests can commonly be found under beaches.
If the water is shallow enough, a deep bed of sand can underlie it. Otherwise, the water can run past the sand and onto stone and dirt below.
