I visited on a cloudy evening after it had rained earlier in the day, but the sunset was still very nice. The area itself is a but grubby but is still worth visiting for the sunset.

I wouldn't recommend doing it mid... More

I am looking forward to see the sunset of Manila Bay whenever i come to this City. It seems i can feel the cool breeze of a bit fresh air here. But the colors of sunset is the one that made many heads turn to view it. My camera is always at hand when in the afternoon near dusk. I... More

A lot of restaurants, bars, some with live music, are available at reasonable prices! This bay would be even more attractive if it... More

Manila Bay is a spectacular place to visit and the view is amazing. Especially the sunset very romantic I must say... There was a lot of people walking around and a lot of fun activities, bars, restaurant, and even live music... With all that being said there was a stinky odor coming from the bay because of all the trash... More
