I believe kept using beach supply for quite a long time. In the D-Day campaign, does there ever come time when I should abandon them?

as long as you can spare the TF (and usually you can), I'd agree keep it going. The big constraint on allied supply in France is port capacity. Perhaps once you have Antwerp and Marseilles repaired etc then you probably don't them but that happens fairly late in the game

Loki is right. Even when you have ports, until they're 100% repaired, you often can land an Allied division on an invasion beach and onload it the same turn, whereas units landed in damaged ports will probably need to wait until the following turn to unload.

I did learn from something Loki posted the other day, which is that if you have a damaged port size 1 or 2, and put a TF into it over a turn, it will fully repair the port. So that is something else to think about.

Units unloading across a beach do so for free. If you use a port it costs port capacity.
