Magdalla Port is a port located on India's west coast, along the southern bank of the Tapi river in the state of Gujarat.[1] A deep water anchorage is located 10 km southwest from the port. The port is connected with Udhana city GIDC and Pandesara Industrial Estate and the port is connected with Surat by state highway No.66. Magdalla Port is also connected by road and rail with several other towns in the area. Major imports handled by Magdalla Port include coal.[2]

Much of the imported coal arriving at Magdalla Port comes from Indonesia.[3] Magdalla appears regularly as one of India's key coal ports on Platts' summaries of Indian coal import activity.[4]
