SUNSET VIEWING AT ITS BEST.....BUT

The place is grrreat for photoshooting the Manila Bay sunset. The only this that turns off some people would be some parts if the area with a foul smell.

It is nice to dine in a restaurant with Manila Bay as the view. It is also nice to just be walking around overlooking Manila Bay.

If you're looking for a visual representation of how little the Manila city government cares about pollution, you've found your nirvana along the Manila Baywalk. The Baywalk itself is nice enough, with solid pavement in most places and some nicely displayed flora. This is ruined entirely the moment you spot the "beach". Perhaps there's sand forming the base of this... More

Manila Bay is famous for its sunsets here... sadly it was too cloudy the day I came but if you google it you will see some amazing sights. It's a clean promenade stretching a few km. Families, tourists friends and hikers go up and down and sit by the sea. Some places to buy snacks and drinks but otherwise it... More

Yes, this place has a lot of history. Walking along the bay walk brings a lot of nostalgia. But its current state is disgusting. Trash around. Excrement scattered along the bay walk. Not sure whether Manila's local government is serious in maintaining this valuable place.

It could be one of the most beautiful bay in the world unfortunately the city of Manila probably think the bay is a sewage for 20 million people therefore it became the worse bay in the world

This attraction is free! All you have to do is walk or jog towards CCP and walk along Manila Bay! I love both sunrise and sunset. I just don't like the smell!.

The Bay Area is a lot of fun with a big wheel " the Manila eye " and other attractions and some nice restaurants and street fenders . Tickets to all the attractions can be bought on line for a big discount . Enjoy it if U have the time .
