We visited the fish market on a Friday. The market was thriving throughout the day. While none of the fish were 'on ice', we did not find fish being displayed on the floor. Vendors were friendly and open to having pictures taken; just ask first....More

I saw some good reviews about this place. To be honest there is nothing to see here as a tourist. Place is over crowded by locals. Smelly and messy. Its not a tourist spot.

It’s a fish market by all purpose. Fresh tunas and all local fish... But beware, the smell and the general hygiene of things are going to bother you. With out the ice packs on which to rest the fish, under hot weather, odors tend to...More

It was worth having a look but we were glad we had a guide. The fish was fresh and it was a good example of culture in this area.

We took a guided tour for Male City Tour. The guide took us here to the Male Fish Market. You can see varieties of fishes sold here. Tuna and Snappers were sold extensively. It was a nice experience.

Came across this place accidentally and it was a pleasant surprise. It was so interesting to see the hustle and bustle of the market with fresh seafood in the morning. There is a restaurant upstairs.

This is like many small island and citiy's fish market. It is nothing special and not worth putting on your must see list. If you enjoy seeing fish waiting to be bought by the restaurant or private citizens this is for you.
