Walk along the boulevard

Great sunsets and a stroll along the boulevard. Just the feeling of being in the moment. Great place to be at the end of the day.

What an awesome place to visit. The sunsets are spectacular. We were also able to take a small boat to Corrigidor and view the tunnels.

I was looking forward to this walk along the boulevard. Watching the kids splash around in the surf was spoilt by the constant wafts of rare sewage from the grill over the open drain running along the blvd. On the over side of the sea wall the rocks are covered in rubbish brought in by high tide. If you are... More

Not worth a visit, we walked for 30 minutes in the blazing Manila heat to find this place and we were instantly disappointed. So poorly maintained with nothing to see unless you are willing to continue walking in the heat. I do not recommend visiting this place at all.

this is the place to experience the best sunset in the heart of metro manila. driving along roxas boulevard makes it bearable because of the bay.

Manila Bay isn't the best "tourist" spot. It unfortunately, has trash, a bad stench to it, and the water is very dirty. The government needs to step up on their improvements and laws to protect and preserve Philippines Nature.

A nice way to end your stay in Manila is to watch the stunning colors of the sunset at Manila Bay. Ironically, what gives this spectacular sunset its beauty is the pollution coming from the Manila traffic!

Manila bay at Roxas blv is still a good plave to view the magnificent sunset with a love one but since mayor Lim removed all the bars and entertainment, it is further boring 7 even dangerous at night. However the manila bay is build up in front of Mall of Asia, with great entertainment and the same sunset view. So... More
