Clean compared to Manila Bay!

Of course, its clean compared to Manila Bay. Hehe. And the little tables and chairs in the afternoon is a plus for locals and tourists.

One can take a leisurely stroll at night then enjoy the rest of the evening dining or drinking in the patio of one of the restaurants facing the sea.

From the pier and Silliman University at the north end, the Boulevard is a defining feature of Dumaguete, attracting all and sundry. You can have a stroll, grab a bite, or just sit and watch the world go by.

The place offers nice view of the ocean, and there are a lot of restaurants and bars that abound in this place. Take a picture or a selfie at the "I Love Dumaguete" sign as a remembrance. You can even see Siquijor from afar on a clear day.

This blvd is only really great for the sign, however it is important to look at the various blvd s in the Philippines. I have been to many and enjoy many of them. This one has some places to eat and drink however I was not excited by any of them.

Literally, it's one of the places to visit here, since most of the famous restaurants that you want to eat in are found here. Perfect for jogs in the early morning, strolling in the afternoon, and short walks in the evening.
