I used one of the free US coastline databases for the pre-OSM version of
Freemap. However its resolution/accuracy wasn't sufficient for
detailed-scale maps - for instance, occasionally a coastal footpath would
disappear into the sea.

Landsat in my area of the coast (Solent) seems to be very good accuracy.
Coastal footpaths follow the coast pretty much spot on.
