  • One of the most famous tourist attractions in Male, the fish market is the heart and soul of the city. Though there is nothing special about the place as it is only a local market, it holds great importance for being the bread and butter to many dhonis. You get to see the daily activities of the fishermen and salesmen. Also, if you love eating seafood then grab your hands on tuna and other fresh fishes you see. Surprisingly, the market is all clean with a hygienic environment.
  • One of the few places to look for fresh catch in Male'. But nowadays it is rare to see freshly caught batch as we used to see on our old days. Mostly frozen fish are being sold these days.
