Coordinates: 51°37′52″S 59°10′01″W / 51.631°S 59.167°W / -51.631; -59.167 New Haven is an inlet in the Falkland Islands. It is situated on the west coast of East Falkland, facing Falkland Sound, the stretch of water which divides East Falkland from West Falkland.

New Haven has become notable as the eastern terminus of the new ferry service linking the two islands. A modern roll on-roll off ferry terminal was constructed at New Haven at a cost of £1.5 million - the largest project so far undertaken by the Public Works Department of the Falkland Islands Government [1]. The terminal was opened in a ceremony in November 2008.

The ferry serving the route is the MV Concordia Bay, which is based at New Haven. It runs a regular service from the terminal to Port Howard on West Falkland, carrying lorries, cars and people. The ferry is owned and operated by Workboat Services Ltd.
