The Cape of Gjuhëz (Albanian: Kepi i Gjuhëzës) is a rocky cape northwest of Karaburun Peninsula as well as the westernmost point of continental Albania. It projects 1.1 kilometres (0.68 mi) into the sea in the form of the tongue, thus the origin of its name. The altitudes of the cape slope gradually towards the water, whereas the southern shores form 30 to 40 metres (98 to 131 ft) high steep cliffs that fall directly to the Ionian sea. The cape lacks vegetation, while limestone rocks, highly eroded by Karst are spread over whole the area.
