Great place for a walk day or night. Romantic spot at night. Too many vendors but that can't be helped

The waves were crashing against the retaining wall, the stars were out, and local bands were playing at various establishments along the boulevard. What a delightful way to spend the evening. Various eating establishments with outdoor seating near the pier only added to the festive mood of the season.

Well, the universities are also nice. The waterfront is a gathering place for all sorts of people. Nice for conversations and listening to music at night.

I envisioned this to be somewhat similar to manila's baywalk, iloilo esplanade and bacolod baywalk. I was disappointed. I'm not sure why it has been #1 or 2 on the must places to go in Dumaguete. -dim at night, should have put a lot of lights to highlight the ambiance since its beside the seashore -you can't eat clearly, again...

Great for an afternoon stroll.. We had eaten some tempura, squid rolls, and penoy with vinegar (this one's my favorite!). Basically, all the stalls sell the same items.. The only thing I didn't like was there are a lot of mendicants asking for food or money while you're eating..
