You assume wrong..! Like others have said, it all depends where you are. Different areas, have different by-laws. Local knowledge, posing a question on here, aimed at someone with said knowledge, or even google, is the best bet, to save getting yourself into trouble.
Here in Torbay for example, plenty of beaches, plenty of access to beaches with small craft with wheels or trolley, BUT, if your engine is 5hp or more, you have to use one of the 3 dedicated slipways, and pay harbour dues.
