Charlie is enjoying a day by the sea, with several people to annoy and kick butt with and some women to fall in love with.

The best scene is when Charlie's hat as well as the hat of a (then) innocent bystander fall of, and they somehow get entangled with each other. That really is some hilarious stuff...

As this, on the whole, is a funny tramp short in which Charlie does some nice tricks with his hat and other object that come in his way. The ending is great, when all characters are sitting in a bench, as it's flipping over...

If you're into the physical Chaplin humour you will sure like By The Sea. 7/10.
