Better english might be: 'at the beach.'

The hover hints clearly show "strand" as an alternative translation. This is the traditional translation of 'trá' given when it appears in the titles of IrTrad tunes (I can think of a good hornpipe, for example). However, "There is sand on the strand" is marked WRONG here. Tsk, tsk.

For a word introduced in the "abstract objects" lesson, gaineamh (sand) seems awfully ... um ... concrete! :)
