Agardanda is a village in Murud Janjira Taluka, Raigad district, Maharashtra, India. Located 9 kilometers south of Murud, Agardanda is getting prominence because of the ongoing construction of Dighi port, which is just across the narrow creek. Dighi Port Limited (DPL) is setting up an all weather deep draft direct berthing port at Dighi (Southern shore) and Agardanda (Northern Shore) of Rajpuri Creek. It has an attractive beach presenting a panoramic view of the famous Janjira fort. Surrounded on three sides by the sea, Agardanda is tranquil and peaceful place covered in coconut and beetle nut trees.

It is also an important transit hub to get across to Dighi, through ferries plying throughout the day at regular intervals.
