Cape Onman – the easternmost end of the rocky peninsula formed by the gentle slope of a coastal mountain located westward of Kolyuchinskaya Guba (Bay), 30 km from Vankarem Village, Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, Russia. The peninsula juts out to the Chukchi Sea by two projections separated by an embayment with steep, but not abrupt slopes. The northern projection of the peninsula is called in local language Engotky and the southern – Vuarat.
