Outdoor terrace table/chairs by the beach

Looking for a small set of table and 2 chairs for a small terrace in a condo by the ocean. What substance is best to avoid rust and corrosion?? Also, while we cover the furniture, it stays outside during the cold winters.

Thanks for your ideas.

Plastic, Normal aluminum doest work very well right on the beach, as the salt air keeps the normal protective film from forming. Anodized aluminum is much better but only if all the other bolts, pins or other metal connections are all of stainless steel or HDG fasteners would be a second option. Just about anything else will rust eventually.

Salt air corrodes most everything but plastic....or teak.
