I am looking for a word to describe the green, nature-lively land that stands right behind a sand-covered sea-shore coast leading into an ocean. So in trying to picture what I am looking for: imagine the ocean and then next to the ocean is the sanded shore and then next to that imagine a natural growth of trees, etc. What word might best fit this description?
Any insight would be greatly appreciated
EDIT: I just found this image. As seen in it, it describes a "coast" as land Near or next to the sea, but I am looking for a more specific word which describes the actual green-land (with the trees and bushes) as seen in this newfound image:
