Beachfront windows - constant cleaning because of air moisture

I bought an apartment by the beach in Durban, South Africa. The apartment has a great view of the ocean. The only downside is that the windows get what I would call misty from the humidity and salinity in the air. Are there windows or window "treatments" that would help with the constant window cleaning I have to do?

Thanks in advance and best regards,
Alexander

Welcome to the forums.

Nothing of which I'm aware but here in the US some use products like Rain-X or just automotive wax on car windshields to lower the surface tension with water, that might help for you as well. Would not eliminate cleaning but might reduce the frequency.
