|Inhabitants||Elves of Lindon|
Harlond was a haven of the Elves on the southern shores of the Gulf of Lhûn. It was situated in a small inlet about 150 miles south-west of Mithlond, on the side of Harlindon.
It is told that the fleet of Eärnur, arriving in Lindon during the Angmar War, filled the harbours of Harlond, Forlond, and the Grey Havens.
The Sindarin name Harlond is given the translation "Southhaven". Harlond is apparently composed of harn ("south") + lond ("haven").
