Not like an island,
What is a Peninsula?
Peninsulas are strips of land that project into a body of water. Unlike islands, they are connected to a larger piece of land.
The largest peninsula on Earth is the Arabian Peninsula, and countries, such as Italy, Malaysia and Singapore are located on peninsulas.
Florida is a peninsula that is connected to the mainland United States, and Cape Cod is a cape (which is a type of peninsula) that is connected to the coast of Massachusetts.
