Other Names Langstrand
Location: The strip of coast along the Bay of Belfalas, ending at the Pinnath Gelin (Green Hills) to the north. It is bounded on the east by the River Morthond (Blackroot) and on the west by the River Lefnui.
Description: "From the Anfalas, the Langstrand far away, a long line of men of many sorts, hunters and herdsmen and men of little villages, scantily equipped save for the household of Golasgil their lord."
RotK, Book V, Ch 1, Minas Tirith
The distinction between Anfalas and the contingent of Pennath Gelin (hree hundreds of gallant green-clad men) is clear - this was not a land that needed/supported many professional warriors.
