"Nem strandra megyünk"?

Is there something wrong with, "Mi nem megyünk a strandra; esik az eső" as a translation for this sentence?

Nothing wrong. It emphasizes "Mi", as opposed to other people.

Why is the recommended sentence missing 'a'? It just says 'strandra'


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vvsey

Without the "a", it is an indefinite "strand", just any "strand".

Javítsák ki a hibát! Nem fogadja el, hogy "a strandra".

I would say that this is the translation of the sentence: We do not go to beach... Sounds awful, like the Hungarian translation: Nem megyünk strandra. In the colloquial language the Hungarians say: Nem megyünk a strandra, mert esik az eső. This is due to the fact that most people go to one specific beach (a strandra), not just to any beach (strandra).
