Best days to visit are Friday and Saturday mornings. Which ever day you come, be there early. We visited on a Saturday morning at 8 am and it was still bustling. You will see loads of tuna, squids, crab and sadly also some reef fish...More

This is a great fish market, not huge but located in a modern building. It's very clean with fish (loads of varieties) displayed on metal counters. Not at all smelly, everything was so fresh. You can watch people haggling for the best prices then fish...More

We really enjoyed our visit to the fish market. The fish are laid out in front of the sellers. There is a huge range of fish all freshly caught, including tuna, swordfish, and many more. The market has a great atmosphere. Great place to take...More

One of the tourist attraction. You will see local fisherman and local Omani selling fish and sea foods. Very interesting and perfect to shop around.

Technically this is not a tourist attraction but a functioning local fish market. It is always interesting to observe the locals, how they dress and how they behave. Also a good opportunity to steal a few photos.

It's a fish market. It sells fish. It sells small fish, big fish and even some medium sized fish. Unless you have a borderline obsession with fish give this place a miss.

We went at 9:00 am--still early enough for a lot of local shoppers. This sight only takes 20 minutes or half an hour, but seeing that they keep all the fish alive until they are bought is quite interesting. Huge prawns, and large as well...More
