Haven of Umbar

Haven of Umbar
   The seaport of the Corsairs.
   A natural harbourage far to the south of the Bay of Belfalas. It was used by the Númenóreans during the Second Age, and it was here that Sauron surrendered himself to Ar-Pharazôn. Its history during the Third Age was turbulent; it eventually fell under the power of the Corsairs, enemies of Gondor, who continued to rule at the time of the War of the Ring.
