What exactly do you mean by near and what exactly do you mean by nice? Other than the unique Mussolinian architecture of some of them (e.g. Sabaudia, Latina), Latian beach towns are rather ugly or, at best, nothing special. Close to Rome (close: e.g., Ostia, Fregene, etc.) the actual sandy beaches are fine but access to the sea is mostly blocked by establishments that provide "beach arrangements" for money. Moreover, they are overcrowded in the summer, mostly by Romans. If you're talking about the present time of the year, I'd suggest you get to Ostia and combine a brief visit to a free part of the beach with the visit of the amazing Ostia antica. And, by the way, welcome to Flyertalk!

When? Are you looking for a beach, or just want to be near the Coast? What you would be advised in May or June would be very different from what people will tell you in August, and even July. You're going to have to provide some information about your trip. Going solo? Bringing kids? How old? How many days are you staying?

Depends on the time of year and what you consider to be close.

Around Rome you can also go the Cinecittą, to visit the film studios and Cinema museum, or (if with kids) to the new amusement park Rainbow Magicland, amazing!
