英语解释:a narrow piece of land that sticks out into the sea
常见翻译:海角,岬

headland.
A long narrow area of highland projecting into the sea is a promontory. Standing on the promontory you can get a wide view of the sea because it is higher than the sea level and jets out into the sea. Usually light houses are erected on promontories because they give the advantage of height.
