The market got me back to time. It is rather small, though a lot of fishes. It is very much like a market at my hometown tens of years ago.

Very disappointed. Considering all the sea around, the choice of fish is extremely poor. I do not recommend visiting at all.

I'm not a big fish eater. As we were on a walking tour of Male.

We went to the markets. Our guide explained the importance of fishing in Maldives.

It was getting late, so there was less fish about. Some of the waste was being thrown into the sea for the stingrays.

Worth a brief look.

Be warned - this place is filled with fish, fish stink, and puddles of fishy liquid. But it’s cool in an 18th century way. If you’ve never been to a fish market, you should have a look. You don’t need more than a few minutes here though...

A very pitoresc place to see. Very smelly, be aware, but with a charm of its own. Watch the fish being cleaned, the skilful workers, the sailors bringing the fish in.

Decided to visit this place, hoping to see the huge tuna. It's not a big market and easy for tourist to walk about. Was fortunate enough to see one of the fishing boat unloading their cstch. The fish there were the freshest I have ever seen. Sadly there are no sashimi shop to enjoy these fresh fish.

It's probably a good idea to go as early as you can, because you want to see as much of the action to be able to really appreciate how fresh the fish really are. You can see the boats coming in from the different islands, to them offloading the fish, and seeing the fish being delivered to the nearby fish market. It was a unique experience because whilst it was very raw, I think we can truly appreciate how hard these fishmen work to get the fish to the market and then of course to see the traders do their business.

In living in the city, sometimes we get disconnected from the food that are served to us at the table or even from the supermarket so it was a wonderful experience to see how the fish are actually brought in.
