How to calculate beach orientation?

Hi everyone,

I’m building a case study application with OSM and I’m trying to figure out how I can determine a beach orientation.

My idea was to use Nominatim API to find out a beach by name, get the coordinates and understand where the sea is relative to the beach, but I’m kinda stuck with the last step (which is basically understanding the beach orientation, aka if a certain beach is facing north, south, etc.).

Can anyone give me some hints?

Thanks!
