No need to go as the fish market is small and smelly. Only some fish on the wet floor and some local fruits.

Your trip to Malè should have the fish market visit on on your list of agenda but be prepared for the onslaught of pungent smells of fish in various forms - salted, fresh, pickled, etc - combined with the strong smell of urine (as men in the area seem to have this weird habit of urinating right on the jetty)....

About 100 meter from the Male jetty along Marine drive. Soon you will see this fish market on your left. Unless, you like to see big yellow-fin tuna, if not, it is very dirty and smelly place. All the fish were lay on the floor and it looks really unhygiene.

The place is dirty, smelly and unpleasant. If you are a biologist and me, you may find it interesting just because of the fishes. Otherwise, just a dirty place, really. And very unpleasant to women...since this is supposed to be a men's place. I really don't think that it is worth the trip to Malé, unless you are really interested... More

I got to experience cleaning some fishes and got cool pictures of me and the fish vendor! Of course I ended up smelling fishy but it was a Maldivian experience!

The market has such a wide variety of fish on sale each morning. The fisherman go out at night and it is possible to arrange through the resort a night fishing trip with them
