Doğanyurt, formerly Hoşalay, is a town and district of the Kastamonu Province in the Black Sea region of Turkey. Doğanyurt is a very attractive town with a good harbor. It is situated about 20 Nm west of İnebolu. The village, situated by a river, is very rustic, with wooden houses.
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.
The harbor is pleasant, not very busy. The water is not bad for the Black Sea and one can have a pleasant swim here.
