The Port of Jindao (Xiaodongese: 金岛港; Jīndǎo Gǎng) is the main port in the city-state of Jindao, and comprises most of its cargo, ferry and cruise traffic. The port is situated on Jindao's large natural harbour and inlet, which allows for increased volumes of traffic simultaneously. Although having been used as a port since settlers had lived there, the main infrastructure for the port was built as its current location by Gaullica, and opened in 1885.
Jindao serves mainly as a cargo port, and receives cargo from across the world, being one of the world's busiest container ports, although it mainly receives cargo whose destination is mainland Xiaodong. Cruises have begun to increase in popularity in recent times, but the owners of the port, Fen Hsiang Company and the Port of Jindao International Company, have not made it clear that the port will be expanded in future to incorporate larger cruise traffic.
