Toman Head is a peninsula off Almoth Plain on which lies the town of Falme. It is here that the Seanchan first landed during the Corenne (TGH, Ch. 29). When Fain stole the Horn of Valere from Fal Dara, he fled there and called on Rand to follow him (TGH, Ch. 33). After retrieving the Horn and the Shadar Logoth dagger, the Seanchan were driven out of the area by the Heroes of the Horn while Rand battled Ishamael in the sky above (TGH, Ch. 47). A line in the Prophecies of the Dragon, translated as “Five ride forth, and four return. Above the watchers shall he proclaim himself, bannered cross the sky in fire” Vandene believed this referred to the Watchers over the Waves, who had a community on Toman Head, this belief was shown to be correct (TGH, Ch. 22).

Toman Head is not heavily populated. Falme is the largest town and is not considered particularly large (TGH, Ch. 9).
