In France, yes. And I understand by now why. I am currently reading
Victor Hugo's "Les Misérables", and he writes in this novel that one of
the reasons of the French Revolution of 1789 was that 96% people could
not walk where they wanted, as the land belonged to the nobility (2%)
and to the clergy (another 2%).
In other parts there are still beaches which could belong to a company,
an organization, to a private person, and there is no access there due
to a fence or a barrier which is hardly visible form a satellite. And an
access status can change with time, at one time there is a public
access, then there is no access, then it changes again.
But in any case, there are cities where seaside beaches are not walkable
even inside city limits.
