The closest saltwater beaches to Missouri are those in the northern Gulf Coast on the southern edges of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. Beaches in this region can be reached from most points in Missouri within 10 to 12 hours by car or within a few hours by plane.

Additionally, there are several state parks throughout the state of Missouri that feature fresh water beaches along lake shores,where visitors can engage in boating and other water activities. So, unless one's specific goal is to visit an ocean, it is possible to visit a beach without ever leaving the state of Missouri.
