Guimaras Island Shopping: 7 reviews and 14 photos
That's not the name of the store; I was referring to the local fisherman selling his fresh catch at the beach. You don't have to go far to the wet market. Most importantly, you're sure you're buying the freshest fish because the fisherman just caught them that dawn...You can even request the fisherman to clean and grill the fish for you ;))
What to buy: You can buy fresh tanigue, bisugo, eel, squid, baby octopus, etc. I witnessed how fast the fisherman's catch was sold out. Because more buyers came to ask for fish, he had to make a second trip back to the sea to catch some more.
What to pay: Fish and seafoods are very cheap in Guimaras, much cheaper than in Manila and other provinces. For example, one big tanigue was bought by a lady for only P150! Please don't haggle anymore with the fisherman. Let him earn for his family.
Address: Raymen's Beach, Alubihod, Guimaras
Directions: Just go to the beach early morning. You'll find a fisherman on the beach of your resort with his catch laid out in his banca. I suggest you go there as early as sunrise if you want to choose the best catch.
