Almaida

Almaida was a shoreland town that apparently lay on the Bay of Andúnië in the northwestern region of Númenor known as the Andustar. It seems to have been built a little further westward along the bay than the main city of Andúnië itself, but little more can be said of Almaida. The name is only known from a single sketch-map of Númenor, and is never mentioned elsewhere.[1]
