“best stretch of beach in Bali”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Fishermen spend their entire days by the water and I am convinced they chose the best stretch of beach on the island for this fish market. Pretty tough to find, this market is a gem! As some previous reviewers stated, it is a market for the locals and run by the locals. I think we were the only tourists around at the time we visited, which makes it that much more interesting. The fisherman were hard at work and that made for amazing views, just watching them bring the fresh fish in the large baskets. The water here is a gorgeous blue, you should not miss this market, even if just to see the amazing stretch of beach! The market itself is pretty unsanitary and a bit dirty, but the fish is certainly fresh. We found our way here via a private car transfer.

“A very local experience”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

If you love local markets and fish, go to this one. There's a large range of very fresh fish and other seafood. So good to see some of the ones I only just read about. We were lucky enough to go with the chef from our villa and picked out what we wanted him to cook for us. A real treat!

“If you like fishing, go”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

For those who like fish and fishing. A very busy fish market, the activity is frantic from shore to stall. Interseting to watch the process as the catch come from the boat and end up in the frantic barganing at the stalls. The variety of seafood is great and the actuall market which is under cover is very large. I wish I had a kitchen in Bali there was so much I want'd to buy and turn into a culinary masterpiece. Worth a visit.
