Well I will be the first to say it "JAWS"
It stopped people from swimming and the cello tune is still the universal background musical for Sharks.

It's impossible to think of beach movies without thinking of "Gidget."
Sandra Dee is perfect as Gidget (Girl + Midget), the lovable tomboy who learns to surf while all the other girls are learning how to snare boys.
It's an old, classic, cute beach movie

My favorite movie that has do with a beach is Point Break with Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves.

Not really a beach movie in the classic style as Gidget, but has surfers and lots of action.

Sharktopus. Because this almost-naked chick gets chomped in half by a ridiculous half-shark, half-octopus while using a metal detector, and some old creeper guy just watches and then steals the treasure she found.

Can't believe nobody has mentioned this beach film: Castaway. Definitely the best beach film, who doesn't love Tom Hanks? He makes the best of a horrible situation, very resourceful guy, goes a little insane but who wouldn't? Everyone remembers the heart-wrenching scene where Wilson the volleyball, his only "friend" gets swept away by the ocean and the subsequent rescue. The story is very real and doesn't have a utopian happy ending, which is only good for sappy love stories.

Hmm, Jaws and Castway are suggestions hard to beat
