There are beaches in Colonia (one hour by ferry) and Montevideo (almost 3 hours by ferry, 40 minutes by plane). Schedules of ferry at www.buquebus.com. Both the Colonia and Montevideo beaches are on Rio de la Plata, although at Montevideo it seems like an ocean. Montevideo's beaches are really good city beaches -- think Nice in France, but nicer. Better beaches, including real Atlantic beaches, are at Punta del Este, a one hour flight. All I've mentioned are in Uruguay, and there is loads of info on all of them in this forum already -- just use the search bar. There are also Argentinean beach areas -- Pinamar, Mar del Plata, etc. But I don't know the travel details for those.

Argentine beaches are not day trips, as they require at least about a couple of hundred miles of travel each way.

av is right, you need more than a day to go for ex. to Mar del Plata, Pinamar, etc. you would also need more than a day to go to Punta in Uruguay! where you will love the beaches there. Very nice!! you can fly, and you'll be there in 40 minutes. Easy and fun.
