Can coastal systems withstand shock the fleet the enemy? Yes, if we are talking about modern coastal missile systems. Russia has such a crushing weapon. His name is "Bastion."

On the Zvezda channel, in the issue of the Military Acceptance program, it is told about what this formidable mobile coastal missile complex is based on Onyx supersonic missiles.

One of the locations of the Bastions is Iturup Island, which is part of the Kuril ridge. At one time, the deployment of coastal missile systems on the island caused a negative reaction from Japan. However, the Japanese were once again explained that the Kuril Islands are the territory of Russia, and that Russia can place defensive weapons on its territory where it decides to be the most expedient.
