So 100% of those beach manholes are watertight and safe from flooding, and
don't contain any gear that will get upset if it does in fact end up with
salt water in there?

This listing for landing points in Japan seems to call out a hell of a lot of
specific buildings that are nowhere near 10 to 30 km inland:

Singapore: Right on the water.

Hong Kong:  More of same (though with its hills, some of the 8 sites may
actually be a bit above sea level even though they're 2 blocks from water)

Cryptome has a bunch of older images that tend to indicate that a lot of
buildings right on the water in New Jersey and Long Island are involved:

And that's just in the first 3 pages returned by Google for "cable landing 

The experience of the Manhattan phone system when the conduits and basements
flooded during Sandy tends to indicate that we *are* in for similar
surprises over the coming decades.
