Forlond was a harbour that lay on the northern shore of the Gulf of Lhûn, in the Elvish land of Forlindon. It had an equivalent on the southern shore: the Harlond.
Forlond was located some two hundred miles to the northwest of the Grey Havens, at the mouth of the Gulf of Lhûn.
When the ships of the Gondorian general Eärnur arrived in Lindon during the Angmar War, it is told that they filled the Forlond, Harlond and the Grey Havens.
According to Robert Foster, Forlond is a Sindarin name meaning "north-haven".
The name used by Tolkien on an early map was Forlorn.
