Nice evening walk

It is a lovely place to stroll in the evening after the heat of the day but be careful there are a lot of shady characters around after dark.

I go here to jog late in the afternoon and I often notice the trash that people throw around recklessly. It can be seen on he sides of the walkway, or on the sea itself. It's just sad to see that people never realize how doing this could also negatively affect us (example, floods brought about even just by mild... More

I used to watch the sunset at the bay walk with friends. We sit there to study for exams then eat at the Aristocrat.

Unfortunately apparently the reason the sunsets are so stunning is because of the poluted air. The water is also very poluted and stinks although there are kids that swim/bathe in it. The baywalk is... More

Manila Bay is a gorgeous location when one wants to unwind and witness the beautiful sunset. My son enjoyed running along the boulevard, with the joggers.

Here you'll find the best sunset in Manila. A cheap place to relax and unwind in the city. Bring your family or friends. Or you can simply go alone and watch birds feeding in the afternoon.

Manila bay offers a mediocre view with little to offer other then some natural surroundings in a city full of dull sites and pollution. It's worth checking out if your in the nearby mall which is a 5 minutes walk away from the bay.
