Not true at all. It may feel cool because of the sea breeze, and the days are cooler than inland areas, but daytime highs on the coast are usually in the 60s in winter. Nighttime lows are warmer on the coast than inland/desert, which see frost and temperatures in the low 40s/upper 30s. Beach areas on the coast usually at night in winter range from 46-52F by comparison.

Depends on what you mean by beach. I'm 10 minutes away and I get frost off and on during the winter with occasional nighttime temps in the high 30s, and low 40s not unusual(like last night.. was 46 at ~9am this morning). Off-shore flow drops the humidity down significantly so we get these freezing cold nights, and the occasional arctic storm hits as well.

Exactly. There are some microclimate areas in SJ Capistrano that are a mere 5 miles (direct) from the shore that can be 15 cooler than more exposed areas of the Capistrano Valley that are much less than a mile away. You can tell who live in those areas by the frost all over their cars during AM commute.

I think the OP would be more likely to find what she's looking for (beachfront bars and warm nights) in Florida or Hawaii.

Agreed - OP would love SoBe. Pretty hard to beat based on your requirements. I personally love the place, but just to visit on occasion when I lived in Chicago. Trying to live there year round would be absolutely miserable to me but it doesn't sound like that's the objective of the OP.

Au Contrare: I live one mile from the Beach in Huntington BEach, this year we've had at least three nights where it dropped to freezing. Plus a few days where it never went over 50

Really? I'm a few miles down the road, heading south, and don't recall any freezing nights, or days with highs in the 40's.

Nowhere in CA does the temp stay that high all year as most have said already. Maybe you should think about Hawaii.

If 13 miles inland from the central coast of Ventura is close enough, Ojai Valley stays pretty warm all year. It's difficult to compare Ojai to another city/town as it is a diverse community with very unique demographics. Known to have some of the best spas in the world. A vast majority of Ojai's population are people who enjoy the mystic arts and coexist with nature. When I lived there my neighbor was Canadian and his home next to mine was his vacation home during the winter months. You should check it out. 
