  • Interesting to see if you are on Male anyway, but not really worth a special visit there. It's a smelly fish market.  more »
  • The place near by. Ones we are reach the Male city we can go by walk. That is the best way. Because of city is very very small and many vehicles, specially lots of motor bikes. Any way we are there to...  more »
  • Frantic but interesting. Plenty of fish in both species and number. The action is incomprehensible but has to be seen to be believed  more »

  • Everything u need with veggies to fruits to fishes to souvenirs...fr wet to dry goods!! Very interesting place to see and not to miss!!👏
  • 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
  • Small fish market with local fresh fish- yellow tail tuna, red snapper.
  • 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.
  • Local fish are available. Fresh fish. Tuna and reef fish available.
