A spit is where long shore drift has transported dunes and then deposited then just off a headland, the spit is normally in the direction of the prevailing wind.
Beaches are where the cliff has been eroded by abrasion, erosion and hydrolic action, resulting in much smaller eroded rocks being deposited in from of them.
These aren't great descriptions, it was a while since I did AS Geography

hi yes for geog I'm doing a project on sustainability in Brighton. Beaches can be very popular due to the stunning views over the sea and it can be very relaxing for parents and the elderly as they watch their kids play in the sea. The beaches and cliffs have been eroded in a certain way due to the sea, a physical element, washing upon the rocks and pebbles.

The woodlands have been there since ages and the port was built by humans to bring the boats in. The road is humane because it can get very busy.

That's all I know.

Hope this helps xx
