Umbar was an old Númenórean haven settled by the King's Men — a proud faction loyal to the King and opposed to the divine authority of the Valar. (See also: Elendili). After the Downfall of Númenor, the inhabitants of Umbar further descended into evil, and were counted among the Black Númenóreans. They took to pillaging and piracy along the coasts of Gondor. At the end of the Kinstrife, the defeated rebels of Gondor (the Castamiri) fled to Umbar — by this time Umbar had become the hated enemy of Gondor. Image File history File links Arda. ...

Umbar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1290 words)
These new Corsairs were cruel slavers who often raided the coasts of Belfalas and Anfalas in Gondor: in T.A 2746 for example, Amrothos, the 15th Prince of Dol Amroth fell defending Dol-en-Ernil against them.
Umbar's fleet was largely destroyed 29 years later, when Thorongil (Aragorn Elessar, as it later turned out) in the service of the Steward of Gondor Ecthelion II led a taskforce south and burned them, killing the Captain of the Haven in the process.
Umbar appeared on the bottom edge of the maps found in earlier editions of Lord of the Rings, but it is absent from modern editions, which regrettably map a slightly smaller area of Middle-earth.
Bambooweb: Umbar (1185 words)
Umbar had been built by the Númenóreans in the year 3220 of the Second Age, and like the havens of Pelargir and Lond Daer later grew into a fortress from which Númenórean influence spread over Middle-earth.
During the early Third Age Umbar was an important enemy of Gondor, and the province of Harondor or South Gondor was contested between the realms.
Umbar was destroyed once again in 2980, when the great warrior Thorongil (Aragorn Elessar, as it later turned out) in the service of the Steward of Gondor Ecthelion II led a taskforce south and killed the Captain of the Haven.
