Santa Pola Fish Market

If you do not want to travel too far, the Santa Pola fish market is a short drive from Gran Alacant and an ideal afternoon out for all the family.

After a days fishing in the mediterranean sea Santa Pola’s fishing fleet race into the harbour hoping to be one of the first to unload their freshly caught fish to send to auction.

The fish palletes are quickly hurried onto the trollies before being wheeled off to the fish auction just a few metres away.

The auction is performed by computer and every pallete begins at a high price and then continues to fall until the buyers find the right price.

There is also a chance to buy at the market stalls.

Car parking is available along the harbour front.
