I'd suggest don't worry about their "size" & simply map them by what
they're called Cape Agulhas is a =cape, Cape York Peninsula is a =peninsula.

Smaller features, such as
Burleigh Headland https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=16/-28.0932/153.4591,
Point Danger https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=16/-28.1650/153.5530, &
Southport Spit https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=13/-27.9567/153.4276
could all also be mapped as =cape (although the Spit should possibly be an
=isthmus? {which doesn't actually exist yet!}))
