Edhellond was an ancient harbour in south Gondor.

Edhellond (Sindarin for Elf Harbour) had been founded by the Nandorin Elves of Lórien long 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 Nimrodel's handmaiden, the Elf Mithrellas, was taken by Imrazôr the Númenórean as his wife, and their son Galador founded the line of the Princes of Dol Amroth.

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