Semporna Central Market

As fresh as it gets

What we say: 4 stars

The location allows the catch of the day to be floated right in and you'll find the incredible bounty of the Celebes Sea – fresh fish, crab, prawns, even sea cucumbers – being sold for dinner. Unfortunately, you'll also see sharks and other vulnerable species for sale.

The fruit selection puts the town's supermarket to shame and we dare you to leave without a few mangoes or sliced pineapple.

In a clever move, the stalls along the main footpath around the market specialise in traveller essentials and sundries – look for everything from toothpaste to potato chips to pirated DVDs. The market starts early and wraps up around sunset.
