Well, being in H2O hotel, I have my breakfast family the bay. What I can see is a nice and clean water with many ships. Crossing the signal and walking 1 km after US Embassy, is the Bay. Many people do exercise early morning.

The sunset is indeed a good view. But sadly it is full of homeless people which would definitely break your heart.

Dirty smelly any full of desperate homeless. Dangerous place when sun goes down. Streets stink of urine. Families sleeping on footpaths caked in dirt. Children following you begging you to feed them. Avoid avoid avoid

Enjoyed the Manila Bay from my hotel every day. There were beautiful sunset s every day. I watched fisherman in the bay every morning. The smell was pretty bad though- if you can stomach that, you'll be good

After just a few hours in Manila, you'll want to go here. A good escape from the city, which can be very stressful. An evening walk along the shore will refuel your batteries for sure.

Stayed in The Manila Hotel and our room was upper floor and at the rear of the building. Unobtrusive views but to be honest nothing to look at save for one cruise liner that docked during our stay. Sunset was ok, but without the romantic setting I'm sure this view can be found anywhere.
