Kedonganan Fish Market is a traditional wet market where most of the fresh catches are sourced from in southern Bali. It’s about 3.6 metres north of Jimbaran Beach, with the western runway of Ngurah Rai International Airport in sight. The largest fresh seafood market in Bali, you’ll find almost any type of saltwater catch, from common red snappers to rare mahi-mahis.
Visit just after sunrise to see fishermen unloading their nets full of sardines, larger catches such as mahi-mahi being weighed for auction, and shrimps, crabs, lobster and a huge variety of sea harvests displayed in rows of ice containers, ready for retail bargain or wholesale.

You can get to Kedonganan Fish Market by following Jalan Uluwatu road to its northern end, or go along Jalan Segara Madu, located south of Ngurah Rai International Airport. The fish market also adjoins a morning village market that mainly serves the local Kedonganan community, with stalls selling fresh groceries and daily necessities. Tropical herbs, spices, fruits and vegetables that locals use in their home cooking are some of the things you’ll find during your visit.
The market opens right after the break of dawn, and the bustling scene continues throughout the day – pick-up trucks with boxes ready to ship out their fresh seafood to hotels and restaurants, while local fishing boats land and unload their catches, greeted by smaller vendors on the sand. The boats often catch their fish in neighbouring Java, Sulawesi and Bali’s own coastal waters of Kusamba and Amed, located on the other side of the island.
Kedonganan Fish Market is a nice alternative to shopping at a supermarket, especially if you’re planning on making good use of your in-villa kitchenette. You can even arrange with a chef for a small and private barbecue party. There’s a huge range of fish available daily, and you can hone your bargaining skills at the same time.
If you’re in for a quick seafood treat at the market, you can have your selection cleaned and grilled right on the spot for a small fee. Kedonganan Fish Market has smaller warungs or locally-run food stalls that allow for cheap seafood dining compared to Jimbaran or Kedonganan’s own cluster of upmarket restaurants.
