The Port is protected by Kanika Sands Island resulting in a natural sheltered and remarkably tranquil basin. Keeping in mind the ecologically sensitive marine santuary at Gahirmatha towards the south, the approach channel is from the Northern side thus restricting all shipping movements to the north of the Port.
