    No, only the latter is actually used in Russian.

    На берегу (где?) is the prepositional case.

    Re: берег

    In modern Russian, some words have two different forms of prepositional case, which is why some linguists insist that one of these forms (the u-form) is actually a different (locational) case.

    О береге - на берегу
    О лесе - в лесу

    The majority of the second declension nouns have only the e-form of the prepositional case. Use of those that have both the u-form and the e-form isn't quite consistent. With some of them, use of the u-form in the "locational" sense is the norm. With others, the e-form is preferred for all meanings, and the u-form is considered substandard.
