We arrived after dark in a weekend where area was packed with locals. Our guide scared me to care for my belongings like mobile, camera and wallet. Actually it’s fish and vegetable market. People put their stuff on the street for selling. Mangos is small and hard but sweety. Different kinds of fish and seafood so buy or to eat. Friendly people when you are escorted by guide.

It's a place where you can find all kinds of fish and sometimes frayed fish where you can eat it on the go. I can assure you here you'll get any fish you're looking for at a very reasonable price.

This is a real place within the heart of the city that people make their living from. There are three zones of the market, the place where they transfer the fish from boats to selling dock, the place where they sell the fish, and the place where they fry the fish to sell. If you go here in the morning, expect a lot of hustle and bustle. It is genuine local market.

There is so much to experience .best to visit in early hours as fishermen just get back from the sea. The boats arrive during night time also. Morning hours get crowded with majority of people wanting to buy the sea products at cheap prices. While you cab shop for , shrimp, lobster , cuttlefish , kingfish, shrimp and others. This is the best place to shop for fish with very reasonable prices.

Awesome fish market that is SUPER primitive and cool to walk around. Our taxi driver found us a man to walk us around the market and show us everything, it was super cool… crazy bad smell though. Would not recommend to a tourist without a guide or local to guide them.

I came here not to buy fish, but to watch the fishermen bring their catches in. There were a few other locals here who did indeed come here to buy and eat the fresh fish. I mingled with the people and took in the sights and atmosphere. Very interesting.

The Fish Market has nothing spectacular unless one wants to buy fresh fish. The place is too crowded, very noisy and vendors can easily cheat you to buy fish that are not fresh. After the recent experience where I got cheated on the quality of fish, I have decided not to go here again.

This is a must see if you have the stomach for it. I think this is a very important place in the city you see the fisherman and crew bringing the days catch from boat to market. There is also kitchens to cook the food. It is a very interesting place to see.

I’m a big market fan, so keep that in mind. However, I loved this place. Fishermen landing on the beach and flogging their catch. Traders furiously buying at auction. I loved it. It’s pretty full-on (even at 1pm) and it’s very much a local, working market. The array of sea food was fantastic and I’m sure you could get stuff cheaply if you’re willing to engage in some bartering.

Literally couldn’t get out of the van because of the smell....I’m not high maintenance and I’m all about experiencing new exciting environments but just couldn’t make it out of the van.
