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

It was night time when we walked around the Boulevard. The location is perfect for a leisurely walk especially after a heavy dinner at the nearby restaurants. The following day, I really went back for some pictorials at the "I <3 DUMAGUETE" area. :-)

The city is nicknamed The City of Gentle People. Dumaguete is referred to as a university town because of the presence of four universities and a number of other colleges where students of the province converge to enroll for tertiary education. I miss watching people loitering in the famous boulevard. It was a weekend over before going home to my... More
