Why is "Er ligt een strand om het hotel" wrong?

"daar is een strand om het hotel". Why is this not a straightforward sentence? I understand, Around the hotel lies a beach, but where is the "There Is"

Er is een strand om het hotel

Why "er is" is not good?

It doesn't sound too bad. Just try reporting it.

"Om het hotel is een strand" - is that possible as well?

Grammatically it is possible, but it sounds weird... This is one of those cases that 'to be' translates as 'staan', 'liggen' or 'zitten' (see my post here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/3871953).

why is this wrong? "Een strand bij rondom een hotel"

You don't have a verb in your sentence and you either say 'bij' or 'rondom', not both. ;)
