There is absolutely nothing great about this boulevard. The bad sewage smells are quite constant , almost as bad as roxas boulevard in Manila bay. The lighting is poor, dimly lit. The traffic noise constant. What a great disappointment! Restaurants & eateries quite badly laid out along a road and paths with dangerous holes .The Mayor needs to be proactive... More

Sunrises are a key feature! Stay at the Honeycomb, Bethel or Residentia, and you get the benefits of a lovely sunrise morning: check out Bo's for a good latte, walk or run along the baywall, join a t'ai-chi exercise group or just take in the pleasant feeling there. Rizal has, however, some serious drawbacks! 1. Although non-smoking signs are posted... More

Quite dark in some areas but the trees are so awesome. An early morning walk will do wonders for anyone and the bay looks so serene at times.

Great place just to chill. Like Manila Bay without the crowds and pollution. Its something unique to Dunaguete. The town has done really well with this feature

Join the locals at sunrise and sunset or when the sun is not very hot. One can watch the fishing boats and ferries or the fisherfolk gathering shells from the rocks. The big acacia trees give enough shade to one wants to exercise, get a massage (at night). The locals enjoy this precious stretch so one can also mix with... More

Lots of tricycles going by which means noise galore on some stupid bay to make some pesos! Go to Italy or anywhere in Europe and you'd see a lot better and cleaner villages!

A great place to walk and excersize, its great to meditate under one of those huge acacia trees along the oceanfront. Great breeze, and some great coffee shops.

The boulevard is best enjoyed at any time of the day. During daylight is one of the best opportunities to take selfies and a scenic view of the ocean. Around 5pm to night is where the fun starts. Along the boulevard, you'd see families, friends or couples enjoying each others company while taking a bite of their favorite Unripe Mangoes... More
