I had always wanted to visit a small fishing village where I can rent a small hut for a month or two, get up early in the morning walking up to a fishman buying the fresh catch of the day, and read by the beach without many tourists round.

Does anyone here know such a village (hopefully not supper expensive)? Thank you for any suggestions.

Look in the Baja California area of Mexico. There are several small fishing villages along the Sea of Cortez and the inlet there. I love the Baja area Very relaxing and slow paced.

Sounds like Nantucket in May (not during busy summer months) to me, there is a little fishing village I visited there, exactly what you are describing.

There are tons of places along the coast of Maine like that. Look anywhere downeast past Bath. The further you go, the more isolated the towns become.
