natural=isthmus is used to tag a named isthmus: a narrow strip of land, bordered by water on both sides and connecting two larger land masses. This tag can also be used for tombolos, which are isthmuses consisting of sand.
An isthmus is a natural feature and thus
natural=isthmus is not intended to be used for named embankments, e.g. Hindenburgdamm (attention: non-standard usage of man_made=embankment in example). However, it is possible that an isthmus has been reinforced with embankments, e.g. La Coupée (location).
There is no approved tag for isthmuses. Some isthmuses are tagged place=locality (definition: 'named place that has no population'), which isn't very specific and wrong for (bigger) populated isthmuses.
