Great View on a Bay

Please don't try it down from Roxas Boulevard! go into one of the high buildings upper floors (maybe some restaurant) and take your pictures from there!

Take a whiff of the Manila Bay air. It's stinky! Do not come here at night! Place is full of low class prostitutes. Well, this area is near the red light district.

When I was growing up, we'd go drive by Roxas Blvd and watch the sun set. Marvelous! It is always nice to pause for a few minutes and watch the sun set there - like a magical place.

The sunset is beautiful but they need to clean up the front. It is difficult to walk the length because the footpath is a mess. There is too much rubbish and it stinks if all the muck in the water in floating inwards, It has potential but needs a clean!

Manila Bay, despite being dirty and stinky, provides one of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen. There are plenty of hotels and restaurants that line up Roxas Blvd. so you can enjoy the sunset all the way through the night. There are also plenty of yacht tours and dinners where the Yacht Club is. However if you're a foreigner... More

There are beautiful sunsets of course and that sort of thing, but the general walkway is so littered, the water has garbage floating in it, the water stinks, there are rats crawling around in the rocks after dark and a lot of homeless sleeping on the rock wall, sidewalk and surrounding area.

Not so clean, but quite good to take view and enjoy your afternoon or evening here, the best spot to see the sunset

Definitely recommend having dinner on board a boat on Manila Bay. The food will satisfy the local palette. Most enjoyable was Manila's skyline from Manila Bay at night. Every evening there is a fireworks display that truly adds to the experience.
