The two ways that make up the multipolygon are not connected at their
end of one, ie there is a little bit sticking out.

Specifically, at this point:
Look at it with the Data layer or in an editor, and you can see the
little extra bit. Just delete that extra node, and should make it a
proper polygon, so should render properly.

I think the tagging of the area is fine.
