The limits of those exposed beach areas shall be the extent of the natural topography of the land surface, not necessarily co-extensive with political boundaries, and shall include private and public property upon which public money may be spent and public debt incurred for the protection and conservation thereof, and taxes levied to support expenditures for those purposes.
