A province and fiefdom of Gondor located on the Bay of Belfalas between the Rivers Morthond and Gilrain. The major city in Belfalas was Dol Amroth, on the peninsula of the same name.

The first settlers in Belfalas were the Elves that established a havens, during the First Age, near the later city of Dol Amroth. That haven was used by the elves right up until TA 1981.

In the Second Age DĂșnedain from NĂșmenor settled on the coast. These settlers were not corrupted by Sauron and eagerly joined the Kingdom of Gondor when it was founded in SA 3320 and Belfalas became a fiefdom of Gondor from that time forth.
