A beach hut (also known as a bathing box) is a small, usually wooden, and often brightly coloured structure used by beachgoers to change clothes, store belongings or generally enjoy the beach.
Unlike a building=hut, a beach hut is generally well-constructed and not permanently occupied. The often bright colours of beach huts can serve as a local landmarks, and privately owned beach houses are often sought after real estate.
