There was nothing much to see. We went as we had time to kill. It's just beside the vegetables and fruits market which has nothing much as well.

After spending time on (on under) the sea, you can see the fishes up close. Tunas, Palamidas, Barracudas and more, are on display. You can see the fishing boats and the fishermen unloading them, and even buy fish for your next meal.
