Hi! A headland is a coastal landform, a point of land usually high and often with a sheer drop, that extends into a body of water. It is a type of promontory*. A headland of considerable size often is called a cape. *If you're not sure what a promontory is: A promontory is a raised mass of land that projects into a lowland or a body of water (in which case it is a peninsula).
