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

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

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.

We thought a walk along the blvd would be nice. While the area was clean, the constant overwhelming sewerage smell made you gag and actually got into your clothes and made us abandon our walk which was a shame as it does have a nice outlook across the bay. Looking over the sea wall, all the rocks and water's edge... More

Not much to say- nothing to see there,smells are not welcoming, no attractions other than a guy trying to kill his horse offering a ride in 30+ heat and poor kind begging. Only reason to go there is to have a more or less calm walk- smth you will look forwards to shortly after entering the busy Manila downtown.
