Tol Uinen was a small island off the coast of Númenor in the Bay of Rómenna. It was located just north of the city of Rómenna.[1]


Starting in about SA 750, the Guild of Venturers showed interest in the island and used it as a haven for their flagship Eämbar which was frequently anchored there. The great captain Aldarion built the lighthouse tower Calmindon there.

It was believed that the island was put there by Uinen herself.[2] It was destroyed when Númenor was destroyed.[3][4]


Tol Uinen appears to be Sindarin; tol means 'island', but the meaning of uinen is unknown. The Complete Guide to Middle-earth suggests a translation of 'isle of ever-water'.[5]
