Magyarcsanád (Romanian: Cenadul Unguresc; Serbian: Чaнaд / Čanad) a multi-ethnical village located in Csongrád (county), southeast Hungary near the Mureş River (Hungarian: Maros). The Maros is a border-river here between northern Hungary and southern Romania.

The population is mainly Hungarian, but many Romanians, Serbians and Roma people are also living here. Magyarcsanád has four churches: a Romanian Orthodox, a Serbian Orthodox, a Calvinist and a Roman Catholic.

The village has an own outskirt called Bökény directly near the Maros. Here is a tumulus (Hungarian: kunhalom) in which archeological artefacts were found.

Magyarcsanád has a partner-settlement Comloşu Mare (Hungarian: Nagykomlós) in Timiş County (Hungarian: Temes).

An old stone-cross was erected near Magyarcsanád in the Middle Ages. The cross still stands. There is a small isle called in Hungarian "Senki szigete" (in English: Nobody's Isle) some kilometers eastward from Magyarcsanád on the border river Mureş. The isle is inhabitated by Phalacrocoracidae (Phalacrocorax carbo).
