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.

It's a really lovely place to go to, a massive shopping mall, an amusement park, plenty of places to eat and drink and best of all the bay stretching out in front of you.
A really lovely place to watch the sunset and it's nice to just see other people as well as you enjoying the whole scenery and theres also a fish spa and aquarium further down.

Driving with my cab driver from the airport to my hotel in Ermita, we passed by Roxas Boulevard that is bounded by Manila Bay.

I felt happy and nostalgic during this ride along the Manila Bay. It is now clean and does not smell bad!

We used to spend time with family and friends in the areas near Manila Bay: eating, talking, watching the sun set, etc.

Manila Bay offers one of the world’s most iconic sunsets. It also has an amazing cityscape and night view. There were efforts to clean the bay of the trashes which were mostly informal settlers and people who didn’t care about the environment. So far, it has improved a lot, and I hope it will be improved more in terms of cleanliness and as a tourist magnet, where people can come to relax and admire the beautiful Manila bay sunset.

There are good restaurants where you can enjoy good Filipino food and inter cuisines, as well as cafes, around the area.

Nice walk along the bay but be aware they are doing works in several places so can’t always see the sea (February 2020)
