I visited the fish market but I didn't stay a lot. It is interesting to see but after 10 minutes you have seen the most important things.

We were positively surprized, how clean the fish market was. They started 8 am. There are toilettes there. No fish smell in the market hall. New and well kept. It has an atmosphere.

The New Mutrah Fish and Vegetable market opened about a year back. Ample parking space which was a concern in the previous temporary market. Lots of fresh fish and vegetables are available. Seperate cleaning area located at one end of the market.

What's nice about this location is if you arrive by cruise ship, it is right outside next to the harbor, actually part of the harbor. We always enjoy checking out the foreign fish markets. Seeing different fish from other parts of the world, and sometimes...More
