Rizal Boulevard is the hearth of the restaurant and nightlife in Dumaguete. I guess every one who visits Dumaguete should not miss this area. Lots of restaurants and bars to choose from.

A good place for night stroll. The area is near places where you can grab dinner. A lot of street food stalls opens up at night too.

Dimly lit, probably due to some lamps not working, Rizal boulevard is an evening stroller's must go to after a hearty dinner in one of the restaurants across the street. That's a first timer reaction. Cool, clean breeze and the leisurely walk sum up the Dumaguete mood where the people are, even if in a bit of a hurry, are... More

Our main purpose in going to Dumaguete is to relax and feel what has been touted as the gentle people of our country. The Boulevard and it's environs is what my wife and I think is the representation of the city and it's people. Since our hotel is fronting the place, we have all the time to observe the people,...

I was expecting a long strip.of the boulevard but realized that the space occupied by the streetfood vendors was just enough to make it novel and a mark of the city. The baywalk was relatively clean and good to visit in the late afternoon. It is a.safe place to go. You do not feel threatened by beggars or pockpockets. There... More

The seaside esplanade in Dumaguete really is one of the high points of a visit to the city. It has massive old trees, it is tidy and well maintained, there are great people watching activities... and it is FREE. Early mornings and evenings are the best times to stroll as it can be rather hot during the day (although if... More

One of the favorite places I stay to find solitude and peace in the middle of busy suburban business projects. Love the view of the clean blue sea.
