“Crowded”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

It was windy but there are many people in this area. The place are slightly dirty. The Manila Bay also near to the biggest shopping mall which call it as SM Asia, typical in Philippines.

“It is a pollute3d, dirty place”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

The sunset is caused by the severe air pollution and if water pollution could contribute to the view, it would be truly spectacular. There are diapers and human waste floating around and the stench is horrible. Noise is a major problem as is the possibility of being robbed. I have seen people catching fish from the wall but I would not even touch my fishing gear if it got in the water. This place is best avoided.

“Great sunset view”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Great sunset views, especially for nostalgic Manila/Metro Manila residents who long for a bit of history. People jog there, bike there, and there's lots to do in the area. But unfortunately, decades of decay due to pollution and trash throwing are still evident, despite the local government's efforts to clean up. Things are improving, and this is part of Manila's old town and is accessible when you go to historical areas like Luneta Park, Rizal Monument, Manila Hotel, etc. Still something I'd take photography and history buffs to but not for every tourist.

“It is Manila's Bay.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Although it is not as clean as you wanted it to be. It has gone through a lot of improvements from when i remembered it. It is getting there.
