Could not get over how clean this market was which sold fish, meat, vegetables etc and was very busy. Building appears fairly new and modern with floor being cleaned regularly and washed out. Right on the waters edge but ocean water extremely clear and clean.

Some may decry the change from the old market, which definitely had more character and atmosphere, but for the actual shopping experience the new market is a much nicer trip. There is a wide selection of freshly caught fish and prawns, and the prices are...More

Very near the souq so worth making a visit. Plenty of fish and a taste of local life. They are used to seeing tourists walking around so not an issue visiting.

This is one place where one can get good fish, prawns and other products, that they clean and give. Parting is an issue on Fridays.

It's a working fish market, so you need to be mindful of that and not get in the road. But very interesting and great photo opportunity. Loved the huge yellow fin tuna.

This place is a worth a quick stop to see Omani fisherman and their catch of the day. Oman is known for more seafood in their Arabic Cuisine compared to other Persian Gulf Arab nations.

Fairly good fish market, reasonable size but certainly not big. Interesting to see the variety of sizes, shapes and hues of fish caught in the vicinity, including some real substantial specimen. You can stand by and observe how the fish are gutted and prepared. A...More
