||That's exactly my question. The original poster was asking what attire is appropriate for going to the beach. I highly doubt they meant going to the beach just to see the ocean and make a bracha since it should not make a difference what you wear. Going to the beach to sit or swim when the weather is warm is inappropriate for males because of tznius and inappropriate for females because of all the pritzus. Is that not correct?

So basically you're saying it's ok to go to the beach - even for a girl???
Reply: "even for a girl?????????" Why not, especially for a girl. A boy is the tough question, but there are times when there is no Pritzut. There is even a Beracha said by the ocean. If your question is, one shouldn't go because of what goes on at the beach, it has nothing to do with the 'beach'. It has to do with going anywhere that improper things are going on or will go on. I leave that to ones imagination.
