Are there any plants that are resistant to salt water?

    Yes.  Plants that can survive on salt water are called halophytes.  These plants are specifically adapted to live in salty areas, and are equipped either with membrane barriers that protect their cells from absorbing salt, or with the ability to secrete salt through glands.  Halophytes represent only about 2% of all plant species, specifically those that grow in salty areas, like mangroves and cordgrass.

    To name a few that will grow in maritime climates: sea rocket, sea kale, sea beet, salt wort (all edible).  Four winged saltbush grows in clay soils in desert environments, it is not edible.  I have attached a paper on farming with salt tolerant plants.
