Visit Australia. Saltwater crocs are fearsome beasties, and since being
protected some years ago, have bounced back to the point where they
occasionally make a snack of an unlucky person. (Ever see "Crocodile
Dundee"? Those were salties)

Hiding isn't a problem. The land/sea interface isn't always sand dunes
fronting up to the sea. There are marshes, mangrove swamps, forests and
salt-water rivers.
