People are all very friendly. Many hand-made items of good quality is for sale. Lovely music provided by buskers. Lovely Sunday morning browse.

Small market in gorgeous location. Worth a look if you are on the island. Some nice local artwork and shell craft, fun drinking coconuts but not everything is locally made. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Remembering we visited in the middle of winter after two or so years of declining tourist numbers, we found this market (held every two weeks on Sundays) to be quite small. There were approximately 15 stalls, most with some form of jewellery or clothing. One...More

The market is pretty cool, there is a large variety in stalls. And is located right on the beach on horseshoe bay. Prices are reasonable for a australian market on that location. Its a perfect way to start your lazy sunday with.

What a load of junk for an island market that could offer beautiful local pieces. We bought from the lady who does the glass earrings and her jewellery is stunning and different but the rest of the junk there I could buy online.

Plenty of marquees but not a big variety of goods. Lots of jewellery if youre into that, but not a lot to take home as a souvenir.

The market had about 10-15 stalls. There was not much of a stall but for an island it would have been massive. There was a massage stall, a lot of amazing local artists selling their work and the usual beach clothes shops and beach jewelry....More

This is a small, occasional market (twice a month, more or less, depending on the season) which is pleasant in many ways. It's right on the beach at Horseshoe Bay, with all the amenities of the park. Most of the stall holders are local residents...More
