Fortress in the Falas region of Beleriand, mentioned in Tolkien's book The Silmarillion. Like Vinyamar, it was ruled by Cirdan and populated by Teleri, until it became a haven for elves fleeing other parts of Beleriand as Morgoth's forces overran it after the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. It was eventually broken and sacked by Morgoth's forces, and the surviving elves fled to Balar.
It is located on the western coast.
