Not on Cakile maritima when photographed, but they do seem to hang around this species, which is a brassica. Beaches and our broccoli patch are the only place we ever seem to see this butterfly. A lot of other insects (bees and flies) were also visiting the Cakile, so I assume it is quite a good nectar producer. I wonder if the cabbage whites lay eggs on it? Never seen any larvae on the plants.
