[Tagging] Walking route on a beach

There are a few walking routes that incorporatesections of beach walking.

These sections have no 'infrastructure' - they are not formed or 
unformed paths, they are just walking along the beach.

The choice of how to map them? As I see it there are two;

A) Create a Path - tagged as a path e.g.Way: 219753403


This renders and is usable by routing software and appears on


B) Create a way without any physical tags e.g Way: 656134075


This does not render on maps but does appear on


This may not be rotatable with some software as it has no physical 

My preference is for B as that does not imply a 'path' but it does get 
some indication of the continuous route.

Any thoughts?
