That is a wave. It gets its energy from the wind.
What is that?
It is depositing sediment onto the beach.
What is it doing?
Where did it get the sediment?
It could be from anywhere because the water carries sediment through erosion. Also the sediment could be from a longshore drift.
When something interrupts a longshore drift, it can form a spit which is why the water is shallow in some places.
The beach is shrinking due to the waves picking up sediment and also the wind too. The process where wind picks up sediment is called deflation.
How did that get there?
The waves form a wave-cut cliff. Its where the waves erode the land so it looks like that. Sometimes there can be a headland on the top.
