Male Fish Market, Male

3.4
Inspect the local produce at Male Fish Market, one of the biggest venues of its kind in the world. Fishermen stock the market every morning, and the daily haul usually includes everything from tuna to swordfish. Make sure you try dried fish, a local specialty with a strong salty taste. You can also find a wide range of fresh fruits and vegetables. Be prepared for some interesting aromas, as fresh fish, crowds, and hot weather make for a strong smell.

    Obviously everything is very simple, but how different are the sea fish, lots of variety and size, obviously not going for shopping, just for gossiping.

    It's absolutely great to visit. Do not miss the vegetable market which is on the other side of the road. Best time to visit is obviously early in the morning

    Fresh fish arrives early in the morning. Thats around 07:00 to 08:00 in the morning. The stock doesnt last long. Then another batch of new fish normally arrives at 03:00 to 04:00 in the afternoon and the stock will last until 07:00. Most sellers dont speak english that well and may be not very friendly. A good reef fish will cost around 5 usd.

Where to stay in Male

Due to the city's dense population, you may be hard-pressed to find spacious accommodations at any time of year in Male. If you're here in transit to one of the surrounding resorts, you may not be able to avoid Male's high prices, as transfers to the islands are generally only possible during daylight hours. The rooms in the hotels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses of Male are on the whole clean, if basic. For more affordable options head to the nearby isle of Hulhumale: a ten-minute boat ride away, this spot proves popular with backpackers.
