A place like Seal Beach is nice because you have easy access to freeways and there aren't nearly as many people as a lot of the other beaches especially compared to other OC beaches but the locals there are a bit older so not as much night life if you're younger.
I live in Long Beach and it is by far the cheapest area to live near the water. The drawbacks are big city problems since it is a big city, the actual beach sucks as there is a giant breakwater off the coast for the old naval bases which stop the tide and it is a bit warmer in the summer time. There I'd pretty good public transit in the city and there are lots of diverse neighborhoods here with something for everyone.. Even criminals! Parking is relatively good for a beach city and there aren't nearly as many tourists or people in general.
