Step in for first hand and fresh seafood experience at this markey. See the sea creatures alive and cook for you with affordable price. We tried our first meal of some sea urchins and sea snails. Cooked them at nearby restaurants/paluto service. Also you could bring home some pasalubongs/souvenirs from Philippines such as dried Mango seche (super delicious), tshirts, magnets,... More

This place is a must just for the experience!!! We bought prawns and crabs and had it cooked for us!!! The mall is dirty and unclean but plenty of seafood sellers to choose from!!! If your an animal lover there's lots of stray cats and dogs hanging around so it may break your heart like it did mine :(

The best place to buy souvenir items of the island and to shop for fresh seafood and have it cooked. The fresh seafood market is surrounded by cooking service restos. Seafood is quite costly compared to Manila but mostly fresh. If there are many of you in a group, it might be cheaper to eat here. Souvenir items are cheaper... More

found it on my 3rd on island. Of two malls/markets ( D'mall & D'talipapa) the 2nd one is more "local". Restaurants are less fancy but definitely cheaper. This is the spot where You can experience some local cooking. There's centrally located fish/seafood market surrounded by restaurants which will prepare purchased "goodies" for You. Some of the stuff they sell is... More

So Talipapa is known for market of fresh seafoods. Ever wonder where those seafoods come from? Not in Boracay itself of course! Those seafoods are from Roxas. But they still manage the seafoods to be fresh. :) Just bring extra money because they will chop your wallet lol. and you will let the resto near the market cook it for... More

lot of people went to Boracay and missed the wet market Talipapa. Here you can get fresh seafood for a reasonable price after some bargaining. There are restaurants around which will cook ur catch for a fee like yummy garlic prawns. But the charge now up to 250PHP per kg. If you come through the alleyway next to Victory Divers... More

A special market place where you could choose your own seafood, bargain at the price you wanted and request the restaurant to cook at your choice! However, do not find that the seafood is worth it as it seems more costly than other places.... But the food was very yummylicious thou!! :)
