A stroll along the malecon between Roxas Blvd., and Manila bay is worth the time. We were warned about pickpockets, and petty criminals, but had no problems. There are many street vendors when the sun goes down. We were lucky to have had a beautiful sunset. So not miss this when in Manila.

They are doing some renovations currently and are improving the overall aspect of it, unfortunately, it's well below what a seafront could be. Not much to do, not much to see. And of course, let's not even talk about the pollution/garbage in the bay.

Sight seeing in Manila will end up here before the sunset, make sure you got a right spot at right bar :)

This place is not as attracting at all as what you have seen in the postcards. Its totally rubbish everywhere. Lots of people sleeping in the sea wall and the sea was so dirty!instead of enjoying the sea breeze,what you would smell is a stinky urine and smells drainage,,horrible!. The only amazing in this place is the sunset and the... More

We jog in Manila bay, the sunset was really beautiful.Even the sea was not so clean. You still amazed the sun set. It's nice to jog/walking in Manila bay every afternoon.

Nice to see at see at night but look out for beggars. It's a distance for those that like to jog and you are off of the street. Not a lot of foot traffic.

The potential of Manila bay is great . Need to educate people about littering and enforcement . Great for a walk . They have planted trees . Not the best Smell from the baywater . Still an escape from the crowded streets . Just have to ignore the odd street vendor .

When you look at the Sunset, its best when you go at Manila Bay to watch the sun sets before evening

Manila bay, or Manila de bay, is an excellent getaway from the noisy, busy, and city of manila. Its nice to visit here from 4 pm onwards because yoh will witness the hilarious sunset. At night, it will somehow gives you a breath of air.
