  • We place well worth a visit as it is located right next to the main souk in Kuwait City and opposite the marina. Pretty clean (though it smells pretty)

  • The fish market is situated in a building which also sells vegetables and fruits, though not as much as in the market Mubarakiya. A taxi ride from the area of Mahboula into this market around 5 KD (US $225.000). Plenty of fresh fish and quite varied types of fish listed. So if staying in town, can get fish from here or Mubarakiya market. This intriguingly fish market is on the seafront. So get shopping and enjoy the sea. In front of the fish market there is also a supermarket, there's Shaq market Sultan.

  • Very clean and organised. You can have fresh fish. Unfortunately no nearby reataurents that serve cooked fish.
  • Fresh fish, shrimps and other sea food. You need to have negotiation skills to take best prices.
  • Fresh variwty od fish as per individual requirements.
  • Largest fishing market of Kuwait...be careful buy and take only what you see...don't take under table stuff, you will be fooled for the product vs price
  • If you are a seafood freak, you'll love ❤ shopping there.

Where to stay in Kuwait City

Few look much further than the peninsula of Kuwait City when looking for accommodations. And with good reason too, with plenty of attractions by the waterfront and a wide range of accommodations located here, including skyscraper hotels, standard chains, basic guesthouses, and charming boutiques. But looking further back from the water can bring up some hidden treasures, with the older (or, at least, less recently renovated) districts still possessing a certain storied charm with their aged look and more traditional markets. You'll find hostels, guesthouses, and a few luxury options to boot.
