Map of the Westlands of Númenor

The Westlands or Andustar region of Númenor1

Regions of Númenor

The western promontory of Númenor more properly called the Andustar, on the coasts of which lay the port city of Andúnië.



This map is mainly canonical, with two exceptions: the location of the city of Ondosto, and the route of the road running through Ondosto to Andúnië. From descriptions of these features, they must have been in approximately the locations shown, but their geography cannot be considered exact.
