Inspect the local produce at Male Fish Market, one of the biggest venues of its kind in the world. Fishermen stock the market every morning, and the daily haul usually includes everything from tuna to swordfish. Make sure you try dried fish, a local specialty with a strong salty taste. You can also find a wide range of fresh fruits and vegetables. Be prepared for some interesting aromas, as fresh fish, crowds, and hot weather make for a strong smell. Make Male Fish Market a part of your Male vacation plans using our Male trip planner.

  • Love this Fish market!! Fun to watch the boxes of fishes being unloaded from boats, delivered to the nearby fish market. Fresh fishes being displayed, sold by the roadsides and some inside the fish market (building). Interesting to watch the huge fishes being cut into fillets or sizes according to customers' requests. All being very fresh!!!
  • Nice place to walk and maybe get something to eat, local snaks, food, candies...and look at the real life of Maldives people
