Any river, sea or lake has a far shore, it's the one you aren't standing on, even if it's only a few feet away.

The only specific one I've ever heard of is the far fatal shore - which is the name given to numerous shores in Tasmania (Van Dieman's land) or Australia where convicts and other transported people fetched up.
