2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Lots of fisherfolk living under plastic and cardboard along the waterfront. Enormous amount of trash in the rock wall and the water is very polluted and smelly. Missed opportunity for the city. Needs cleaning up and made safe as a community space

The Manila Baywalk is a nice walk south of the US Embassy. It is wide and not too crowded (vastly different from most areas of Manila). Downside is the lack of the sidewalk in front of the embassy. There is a walking path but the embassy staff refuses to allow people to use it.

This bay area is very good if you are a romantic person taking your partner for a romantic walk. But there is nothing much here for most of the bay area besides industrial things and Embassies. Not too good if you walk in the day time as there is limited shelter But it is very famous for the sunsets. Best... More

The sea breeze and the soul lifting scenic view while the sun is setting down and welcoming the beautiful moon was so relaxing.

looking at the Manila Skyline from a ship is a very enjoyable sight to see. Manila Bay is best enjoyed if your on a Boat Cruising the Bay.

Sunset in the bay...a must see. Its a great place to take pics, sit down and relax. Nice boulevard that goes all the way so no problem with the busy traffic. Reality also shows that alot of dirt is going into the sea. You can see alot of locals trying to get cans, plastic,...out of the water. Thats the other... More

this place gives your serenity, you should come here by afternoon before the sunset. Because its asset is the sunset.

The sunset is best on this side of the metro. If you visit Manila, it is a must for every tourist to see the sinking sun by the bay. It is good for your eyes, not good for your nose though. The best time to stay is of course, before sunset.

The job of reclaiming land still continues and is therefore not very traquil.Sadly we did not experience a sunset over the bay.

Manila Bay is very famous for its sunset. Take a nice stroll by the boulevard while basking in the sunset. Go to the part near the SM Mall of Asia as there is not much smell.
