“Interesting to drop by”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

This was quite interesting to see the variety of fish caught and sold - nowhere near as smelly as expected, so obviously kept very clean. There were some huge fish and no-one minded if you took photos.

“Very busy”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

There are a lot of people and being quite hot in April it was rather stuffy, once is enough but good to see where the Male people live

“Interesting and fun to watch”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Go to the capital Male just 5 minutes by boat from the Airport Island and walk along the waterfront till you see the fishermen.
This is like it's ben for centuries...fishermen bringing in their fresh catch, offering it for sale and providing the buzz that goes with a busy market.
Wonderful, authentic experience.

“A hub of local economy”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Enormous market. Fresh, vibrant. An buzz of activity, colour, textures and sights. Find time to walk there and witness the rich resources of a healthy ocean environment.

“Everyday, until sunset”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

I like the sounds and shouts and the different prices when we ask them. Too crowded !
And I as myself do not like the Fish Market to be half empty now a days.
