None are correct. Delete all the commas; you're using defining clauses. You need an article before 'peninsula'.
In 2, you can't join two sentences with a comma.

Also, delete 'spacious'. It is meaningless.

A peninsula can be as big as Florida or as small as a few square metres.

Additionally, change 'seas' to 'water' as lakes and oceans have peninsulas, too.

A better title would have been '
peninsula definition'.
