Though the private islands in the Maldives do not give much opportunity for shopping, the public islands of Male and Hulhumale are the places to go for authentic and international items. One of the most popular shopping experiences can be had at the iconic Fish Market. Located in Malé, this fish market is unique because one can find almost any kind of fish here. One can easily find groupers, sea bass, red snappers, dolphin fish, and barracuda here, the real draw being fresh skipjack and yellowfin tuna. This vibrant market selling fresh fish and seafood is an ideal place to get acquainted with the Maldivian locals. This place also fascinates photographers a lot!
