Outdoor Outlets - Want The Best!

I recently purchased a condo a block away from the beach in S. Florida.
I'm looking to replace my patio outlets with the best on the market. (Home Dept, Loews or online) I need a 4 geng & waterproof. Can you recommend what I should get?

If you have a 4 gang box, you will also need GFCI protection, so where will that come from? The breaker panel with a GFCI breaker, or at the first receptacle protecting downline from there?

Leviton SmartLockPro 20 Amp Slim Weather Resistant/Tamper Resistant GFCI Duplex Outlet - White-R62-WT899-0KW - The Home Depot

Cooper Wiring Devices 15 Amp 125-Volt Tamper and Weather Resistant Duplex Electrical Outlet - White-TWR270W - The Home Depot

These are tamper resistant and weather resistant. HOWEVER, you will still need to have "in use" covers.

Bell 2-Gang Weatherproof Extra Duty While in Use Cover-MM2420CB - The Home Depot
Now, as to how they will stand up to salt air.........time will tell. A marine shop may have dock type receptacles that will have better salt air resistance if that is what you are looking for.
