If you want to watch the sunset without having to spend too much, go for sunsets in Manila Bay! Just stay at seaside and do a picnic... it's fun!

Not just a place for walking hand in hand with a special someone given the great view of Manila Bay, but also a place to wine and dine. Lots of great restaurants and places to drink. Even if you don't stay at one of the two big luxury restaurants there, you can still have an enjoyable afternoon or sunset evening. Recommended for your visit to Manila.

This bay is very dirty and some of the largest slums are adjacent to it but it is still lovely to look at

Since Manila elected a young, dynamic and country loving Mayor, this city has been transformed from a dumpsite to a vibrant, clean and organized state. The streets are finally well lighted and paved. The parks reopened and maintained. The boulevard as beautiful as ever except for a National project putting dolomite sand in the bay area which is a complete disaster.

Disgusting. Health hazard to anyone a mile of this place. The “bay” is full of rubbish and hap-hazard constructions. Beggars (not judging these people) are found sleeping on the streets and everywhere. The poor animals are abused and neglected to a degree of death on legs. Manila is just the worst city ever & Filipinos just carry on as if this is an ok way to live.

The Manila bay is a nice place to relax in the evening and enjoy the sunset view. I was told that the place has become relatively cleaner than it was. It is a good place to be.

The views are awesome especially at sunset. The water is cleaner but still a lot of miscellaneous trash floating around.. Smell is better now.
