what do you do when the coastline is split in several parts (there may be
various reasons for this, some have to do with admin boundaries in cases
where the island is split into several administrative divisions that end at
the coastline)?
How can I know to which objects apply the gns tags?

Overlaying ways is one of the possibilities (personally I do not prefer it,
but it is generally accepted, especially as the only alternative in many
cases are relations, which also are contested), and you didn't provide any
reasons why it should be thoroughly rejected.
