This is my ideal boulevard. Its amazing view of the sea and of the beautiful sunrise makes this my favorite place in the city.. If you are a party-goer, this is your place too... This cool boulevard will transform from a delightful park to an exciting place where people can party and socialize all night. We really had fun during... More

Early morning and late evening the Blvd is busy with walkers, joggers and just people socializing. Evenings you will find a lot of young ladies walking. Some are the ladies from the bars along the blvd some ladies of the night, young ladies looking for foreigners, young couples seeking places to hide away from parental eyes. During fiesta can become... More

The promenade is a tourist attraction in its own right, although a slightly uninteresting one - consider it more a thoroughfare for accessing various little restaurants etc. with the added benefit of a sea view. Some say it reminds them of Cannes or similar. For me, it had echoes of the South Florida Keys (that's probably a personal thing). There... More

Rizal Boulevard seems to be a centre of the city nightlife. Nice place to walk over the ocean in the evening. But this place is full of people who are always trying to sell some crap to a foreigner: cigarettes, handycrafts, sunglasses or whatever. Also there are some beggars. All this spoils the nice atmosphere.

The perfect time to go to Rizal Boulevard is the early morning when the sun is just rising! It's a quaint, picturesque stretch of road fronting the sea at the port area of Dumaguete City. It's quiet and peaceful, with many trees and shops and restaurants around to enjoy after a short walk along the beach. There are quite a... More

I enjoyed the long boardwalk for walking exercise after dining at one of the many fine restaurants nearby.and site seeing the ships that pass by. The boardwalk could use some extra lighting and a few local souvenir stands to sell local custom made items.

Rizal Boulevard offers a long stretch of a walking experience of the city where one side is a row of restaurants and bars and the other side is the wide span of the sea. No sunset view, expect peddlers and vendors of pearls, street kids, occasional street beggars, street food vendors, locals and foreigners alike enjoying the breeze from the... More

Ask for serenity, peace and comfortable place, this is the place to be. We were here last summer of this year and it was really a great time. The city attracts a considerable number of foreign tourists. My friends and I enjoy our walk. The best time to be here is during sunset. In case you will be here, no... More

At any speed, this is the place to go to. Prefer the early morning walks with all types of individuals doing their physical regimen. And, one competes with self to attain your personal goals. YAY!
