  • Best fish market in Male' where we can choose our best fish you see many varieties of around the market.  more »
  • It is slowly looks narrow and they sell a lot of fish, it is interesting, but you can't. As local residents directly buys fish here, put the fish into a blue plastic bag, go back. Come say hi as you, or people working tourism tourists are familiar, but something kinda scary how it was.

  • Fish, large and small, are being cleaned and there is the "open air" quality of the market. A fun little excursion.  more »

  • 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
  • Not like Tsukiji, but very impressive fish working skills here. You can watch the expertise of the fishermen as they clean off the fresh catch.
  • The only place in Maale where you get fresh catch.
  • Sandip das
  • The place is crowded with people
