Great for seafood lovers

The best part of this market is that you can buy whatever fresh seafood you want and get it cooked the way you like in one of the restaurants around the market!

On our last day in Boracay we decided to check out this market. There's lots of small shops selling souvenirs, clothing, flip flops and beach gear. We found a store selling soap made from papaya, coconut, and other fruits. We bought a couple of soaps since they smelled so good. We also bought some personalized keychains to give away as... More

An interesting market with many stalls selling fresh seafood food. Due to the very strong Mainland China tourists here the prices are exorbitant and very touristy. Nearby small restaurants also charge very high prices for cooking the seafood bought from the market. Compared to fresh seafood prices in Malaysia the price is at least 400 per cent higher. Cooking standard... More

So the market is mainly made up of small vendors peddling crap. Crap t shirts and shorts etc. BUT there is an opening where they sell fish and that is quality. Loads of fresh mad fish. It's like snorkelling on land for food

We only purchased pork for sinigang and half kilo of squid for lunch, brought it to one of the paluto and we paid 680 pesos for them (excluding the price of the pork and squid). I really believe it was way overpriced, considering that their 1.5L of Coke costs 120 pesos. Not coming back.

Many of the vendors are not honest with the price and negotiate them down. They will try to sell you product at the highest price they can get from you. I bought sea urchin at a high price and it was small and not appetixing at all. The restaurnat we ate at even informed us that the price was too... More

Don't come here expecting a deal on seafood. We have travelled a lot and the prices were were able to negotiate were more expensive than Thailand and about the same price as North America. My Fiancé had concerns about preparation of foods since there is no running water but luckily neither of us had any issues. Our lobster was over... More

Boracay still offers endless surprises and the allure you'll keep coming back to in time. Despite the big big multimillion changes. Can't find the old haunts that newer establishments wiped out : my old sentimental places- bended coconut trees, Bon Bons regae music, Mongolian Barbecues, etc. Surely Boracay mirrors ones state of mind as we transcend adulthood. When we got... More

We had a blast. Went to the wet market and bought live lobster, all kinds of shell fish and freshest fish on the island. Then went to Blue Jade and had them cook everything up for us. Absolutely amazing!

I would never eat here anything! I couldn't even breath correctly cause of the stinky smelly atmosphere. Also the surrounding restaurants that cook your fish look like gang joints! The only good thing is that it has also a market there with local clothes souvenirs etc for tourists and has much cheaper prices than Dmall and the white beach on... More
