Is there such thing as a private beach on ocean coast? I thought according to federal regulations all ocean beaches are public.

Sure, there can be private land in front of the beach and one may need to walk around several miles to get there.

No... some beaches are private to the high water line. Ours was until a couple of years ago, but we gave it up to the city so that we could get sand when they dredged Lynnhaven inlet.

Chick's Beach is always nice to go to if you want to just relax with very little noise.
