Great seafood market. You buy what you want and then go to any restaraunt around the area to get the food cooked. Do bargain a lot for the seafood prices, best if you can get local to bargain for you.

Small shopping street from white beach to main road... Mostly cheap products which is good for souvenirs... Worth a visit if you are passing by or nothing special.
