The Valar raise the island of Elenna as a dwelling-place for the Edain, who build Númenor upon it:
As a reward for their sufferings in the cause against Morgoth, the Valar... granted to the Edain a land to dwell in....

The Lord of the Rings, Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Númenor

A land was made for the Edain to dwell in, neither part of Middle-earth nor of Valinor, for it was sundered from either by a wide sea; yet it was nearer to Valinor. It was raised by Ossë out of the depths of the Great Water, and it was established by Aulë and enriched by Yavanna; and the Eldar brought thither flowers and fountains out of Tol Eressëa. That land the Valar called Andor, the Land of Gift; and the Star of Eärendil shone bright in the West as a token that all was made ready, and as a guide over the sea....

The Silmarillion, Akallabêth

Most of [the Edain]... set sail over Sea, and guided by the Star of Eärendil came to the great Isle of Elenna, westernmost of all Mortal lands. There they founded the realm of Númenor.
