The Karpass Peninsula (Greek: Καρπασία; Turkish: Karpaz), also known as Karpasia or Karpas is a long, finger-like peninsula that is one of the most prominent geographical features of the island of Cyprus. Its farthest extent is Cape Apostolos Andreas, and its major population centre is the town of Rizokarpaso (Greek: Ριζοκάρπασο; Turkish: Dipkarpaz). Since 1974 the peninsula lies within the illegal and internationally-unrecognised Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
