Map of Jan Mayen

Kapp Muyen (English: Cape Muyden) is a cape just 107 m (350 ft) west of Beerenberg, the stratovolcano which forms the northeastern end of the Norwegian island of Jan Mayen.[1] The point is named after the Dutch whaling master Willem Cornelisz. van Muyden,[1] who was among the first to catch whales at Jan Mayen.
