Does anyone know this term to mean "beachcomber"?
TIA.

Explanation:
Well, to "azotarse" is to loaf around, be a bum, etc. so it makes sense that azotaplayas would be a beachcomber or beach bum. I'm going to research it further though and will let you know if I come up with anything. Suerte!

Explanation:
En Simon & Schuster encuentras: Beachcomb = raquear, andar al raque, vagabundear. Beachcomber = raquero, vagabundo de playas. Pero tambien sugiero:vividor de playas. Espero sea de ayuda.

Explanation:
I think this term fits most to "azotaplayas", (person who makes life on beaches, not necessary legally).
