Today's modern lenses with special coatings must be cleaned carefully.  Buy some lens cleaner from a camera shop and some proper lens paper.  I have found that if you've got salt on your lens, then you might have sand too.  Sand will scratch the surface quite quickly if not cleaned carefully.

Down here at Jervis Bay (NSW south coast) I use a pair of bins that are
constantly subjected to salty air. I was considering how best to clean the
lenses and I would like to know if anyone has advice about the best way to
clean salt spray off lenses. Has anyone advice on the utility of spectacle
lens cleaner on binocular lenses.
