The tag natural=peninsula is used to tag a named peninsula (from Latin paeninsula, from paene "almost" + insula "island"): a piece of land projecting into water from a larger land mass and being nearly surrounded by water.

A peninsula can also be part of a larger peninsula:

A peninsula (dark orange) that is part of another peninsula (light orange)

Tagging

Set a node node in the center of the peninsula or draw an area area encompassing the peninsula and add natural=peninsula + name=*.

Please do not map very large peninsulas like subcontinents as multipolygons as they strain the servers much and are hard to maintain. (Relation#Size recommends a maximum number of 300 members in a relation.)

natural=cape

The tag natural=cape refers to a coastal extreme point, that is the tip of a land area that projects into water. In contrast, natural=peninsula refers to a land area that projects into water and that is nearly surrounded by water.

A natural=peninsula (light orange) and several natural=cape (purple)

A natural=cape can but doesn't have to be be part of a natural=peninsula and there can be several natural=cape on a natural=peninsula. However, a natural=peninsula cannot be part of a natural=cape.

Note that 'cape' sometimes refers to a coastal extreme point, i.e. natural=cape, (e.g. Cape York) and sometimes to a peninsula, i.e. natural=peninsula (e.g. Cape Cod). Besides, both cape and peninsula sometimes share the same name (e.g. Cape York and Cape York peninsula).
