Edhellond was an ancient harbor in southern Gondor.

Edhellond had been founded by the Nandor Elves before the end of the First Age, as a place where they built ships to leave for Valinor.

Amroth, Prince of Lórien, was lost at or near Edhellond in the year 1981 of the Third Age while looking for his beloved Nimrodel. One of her handmaidens, Mithrellas, was taken by Imrazôr the Númenórean as his wife, and their son Galador was to become the founder of the Princes of Dol Amroth line.

Edhellond was built at the mouth of the rivers Ringló and Morthond, where they flowed into Cobas Haven.

Etymology

Edhellond means "Elf Haven" in Sindarin (from edhel = "Elf" and lond = "harbor, haven").
