Manila Bay, Manila

3.1
#4 of 13 in Parks in Manila
With its paved, gently curving 2 km (1.2 mi) promenade lined by palm trees, Manila Bay makes a popular spot for strolling, relaxing, and people-watching. Stretching between the U.S. Embassy and the national cultural center, the area features many cafes and restaurants, plus live music performances complementing the sea views. Take a horse-drawn carriage ride, or simply cruise the area on foot. At night, the area buzzes with open-air cafes and itinerant artists, but you should watch your wallet. For Manila Bay and beyond, use our Manila trip maker tool to get the most from your Manila vacation.

  • Baia bathing Manila. Along the Bay there is a large, Purple, very busy boulevard. Is the area of excellence for jogging, but at the end of the day makes it into place almost deserted. There are tourist boats that do tours of the Bay where you can admire the city for other angles.

  • Delightful way to spend an evening enjoying the sunset before eating out at one of the many restaurants along the baywalk or at the Mall Of Asia
  • A great view, however it's not very clean.
  • Sunset view is so beautiful. But water in the bay isn't in a good condition.
  • Beautiful view from Malati area.
  • The sunset here is amazing. Be sure to catch it.
