The Shoreless

A title of the Great Sea Belegaer

The title given to the Great Sea that washed the western shores of Middle-earth, and stretched on from there into the distant West. The title 'Shoreless' is poetic but inaccurate: far across the World, the Shoreless Sea did indeed reach a shore - that of Aman in the Uttermost West. After the Downfall of Númenor, Aman was taken away from the World, and the Sea reached different shores in the West, those of new lands created after the World was made 'Bent'.
