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.

I love the market with the stalls and the sound of the Steel Drums playing, yachts bobbing in the ocean and the locals and tourists enjoying themselves. I see some fairly petty complaints about this market, which is on one of the most picturesque beaches...More

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.

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

Not a wide variety of goods, but there is an Asian food stall which is great. Location is picture perfect. On the beach front with a pub across the road. Whilst not up there as markets are concerned, it is still worth a visit as...More

Was a bit disappointed with my visit to the Horseshoe Bay markets. I normally don't leave a market without making even the smallest purchase, but we walked the length of the markets in minutes and found nothing of interest. There was a local artisan with...More
