This article is about the Elven port in Lindon. For the port of Minas Tirith, see Harlond (Gondor).

Harlond was an Elf-haven on the southern shores of the Gulf of Lhûn, whose name in fact means 'south-haven'. It precise positioning is open to debate; in Appendix A to The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien writes of it as the southern part of the Grey Havens, but the map that accompanies the book shows it as a small inlet about 150 miles west of Mithlond.
