Doğanyurt, formerly Hoşalay, is a town and district of the Kastamonu Province in the Black Sea region of Turkey. According to the 2000 census, population of the district is 9,668 of which 1,470 live in the town of Doğanyurt.[3][4] The district covers an area of 254 km2 (98 sq mi),[5] and the town lies at an elevation of 235 m (771 ft).

Kerembe Burnu, the ancient Cape Karambis, is located to the northwest of Doğanyurt. The promontory, 225 km distant from the Sarych headland, is the nearest point on the Anatolian coast to the Crimean Peninsula and has for centuries served as a nautical landmark for those seeking to cross the Black Sea at its narrowest point.[6]
