Here is my best explanation:

'cove' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'a bit of beach apparently' is the wordplay.
'a bit of' indicates the answer is hidden within the clue (I've seen 'a bit' mean this (the answer is formed by a bit of the clue)).
'CHAP' can be found hidden inside 'beach apparently'.

'with' acts as a link.
