Washington coast can be cheap, so long as you don't mind 8 months of mostly cloudy and mostly rainy weather. Almost no snow and it never gets bitter cold, but it never gets warm either. Even in summer you won't get much above the upper 60s for the daily highs.

Same with much of Oregon and Northern California (think Crescent City, not Carmel) -- but it's probably not the oceanfront property you're thinking about. Rocky shoreline, not beaches, and you won't be swimming without a wetsuit.

Jacksonville, FL is almost certainly the cheapest oceanfront among the 40 or 50 largest MSAs. I've seen tiny condos on the beach for under 200k. Penthouses (and they are SPECTACULAR) for a little over a million. Prices have come a little but every once in awhile you'll see something in the low 200s. Cheapest "SFH" I see right now is 325k for a 2/2.5 but it's actually an attached townhome. Not updated, but doesn't seem to need much work.

The Northcoast of Ohio is not on the ocean but it boarders Lake Erie. There are waves and tides and a thriving nautical culture. Less expensive than anywhere mentioned.
