You need to go early in the morning to appreciate the market. Large numbers of tuna, sea bass and manta rays. Recommend that you wear washable shoes ( like crocs). Trucks were being loaded with whole tuna being flown to Australia

You must go an take a look at this great sight, i have never seen as many fish on the sand drying out before all kinds. Then go into the fish market and watch them haggle over fresh catch from tuna to prawns. Once you leave the market take a look at the fruit and veg they are selling that many different fruits i could not name half of them. They have 17 different types of bananas just make sure you get the red ones.

Go there Early, go around and feel the atmosphere, they let you take pictures and Holding the Fish, the beach is Right behind it, also a great sight.
Have a tuk tuk driver to take you to the place where the 2.quality Fish is dryed, also worth a look!
