Closest Oceanfront Beach

We are going to be spending some time in Vienna and would like to visit an oceanfront beach sometime while we are there. What is the closest beach and is there a bus and/or train that can get us there?

Vienna is about as far from the ocean as you are from the Gulf of Mexico. Are you sure you're going to Vienna, Austria?

I notice from your other posts that it is Vienna you'll visit. If you're staying for a long, long time and want a seaside break Croatia is probably your best bet. There's a direct train from Vienna to Rijeka at 08:02 in the morning, but it takes nearly 10 hours to get to the sea!

You could try to get a cheap flight to Croatia, Italy or France in order to save some time, but this will still be more than a day-trip.

Austrian Airlines (www.aua.com) has some offers to the Croatian destinations Dubrovnik and Split. But you can also go to a travel agency and ask for packages for a stay by the sea.
