What is the highest seasonal temperature variation for a city on the coastline of a very large body of water (e.g. a sea or an ocean)?

Tianjin has quite a lot of seasonal variation and has a borderline Dwa climate, yet is on the coast of the Yellow Sea. But I'm sure there's someplace with much greater seasonal temperature variation that's on a coastline.

The New England region in the US has 4 distinct seasons (humid continental climate to be precise) and is on the Atlantic coast. It has warm to hot humid summers and snowy cold winters.

New England, at least the coastal areas are actually borderline humid subtropical (Cfa) in climate with the areas immediately inland from the Atlantic Coast being Dfa/Dfb climate zones.

Probably one of the coastlines in Siberia.

Yeah, the most continental coastal area is probably the Bohai coast. Somewhere farther north like the Sea of Okhotsk (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chumikan) or the Hudson Bay (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moosonee#Climate) might have slightly higher seasonal variation but they're just very cold climate that are highly seasonal for being so far north, not typical continental ones.

Yingkou is maybe more continental than Tianjin due to the colder winters although it's also just a colder climate. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yingkou#Climate

EDIT: Maybe somewhere on the Caspian Sea like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atyrau#Climate. It's about 20km from the nearest inlet and about 30km before the sea really opens up though.

My guess would be somewhere in Korea.

Vladivostok can be one of them.

Annual range of some coastal places...

Station: avg coldest month / avg warmest month / annual range

Eureka, Canada: -37.4 / 6.1 / 43.5
Kugaaruk, Canada: -33.5 / 9.3 / 42.8
Chesterfield Inlet, Canada: -30.9 / 10.6 / 41.5
Nikolayev-on-amur, Russia (estuarine): -21.9 / 16.5 / 38.4
Chumikan, Russia: -22.4 / 13.8 / 36.2
Moosonee, Canada: -20.0 / 15.8 / 35.8
Yingkou, China: -9.0 / 24.9 / 33.9
Sinuiju, North Korea: -8.6 / 24.0 / 32.6

Some estuaries in the north of Russia may challenge the Canadian figures, such as the Obi estuary or the ones around Taimyr peninsula.
