There are nice beaches in northern FL on the Gulf Coast for winter.
Those sea islands off the coast of Georgia are supposed to be wonderful when it's not too hot or too cold.
There are great beaches in Massachusetts, sandy, unspoiled. But go in August when the water has warmed up. There is Salisbury State Reservation on the north shore, almost into New Hampshire-- there is a Salisbury Beach that's touristy and tacky but if you take the other road you get to the state reservation. After you are done toasting on the beach, you can go into interesting towns such as Newburyport for fun restaurants and interesting things to see. There's always something going on.

Nearby is Plum Island with gorgeous deserted beaches but no life guards so be careful.

Cape Cod and the islands (Nantucket & Martha's Vineyard have nice beaches too but it can get ridiculously expensive and you have to go on a ferry to get to them. I don't know if any of their beaches are as uncrowded and spacious as a place like Salisbury state reservation.

Crane's Beach in Ipswich MA is VERY and you have to get there early and pay $20/car to just get in. Also, in mid summer there are giant biting greenhead flies and the beach even has to be closed down.

You can sun yourself and go swimming on numerous beaches in southern New Hampshire too. Rye Beach comes to mind but there is a whole string of mind boggling beaches on rte 1A. No hotels, resorts, or junk on most beaches on the north shore of MA or on southern NH. (stay away from Hampton Beach, NH though--jam packed with crowds and traffic.)

Yup, or the Divi All inlusive. All you can eat, all you can drink.

Walk up the beach 100 steps and your all by yourself.

And there are some hotels on Mission Bay with 'their own' (not really, but they look after it) stretch of beach, for the safety of your stuff.
San Diego is swimmable in late summer/spring...there's also Baja California of course.

Turks and Caicos - hands down, no contest!

This was how deserted our beach was every day:

Can't get more relaxing than that! Not to mention, you snorkel right off the beach
