Images of Manila Bay

"If a picture paints a thousand words..."

Let these images in and around Manila Bay speak for itself. Dubbed as having the most spectacular sunsets and a cacopony of activities any given day, this place is a must visit while in Manila.

Things to see and do around Manila Bay:

1) Jog, brisk walk or do Aerobics

    If you are an early riser, head to Roxas Boulevard or the CCP Complex to get your morning juices going.  Jog with the rest of the early risers and fitness buff.

    Or if you are lucky, you may chance upon a free aerobics/zumba class at an open parking or a park along Roxas Boulevard or at the CCP Complex.

    Now if waking up early is not your thing, but you still want to get a sweat, you can jog or brisk walk around the area just before sundown. Luckily, you will be blessed with a spectacular sunset to marvel at, between short breaks.

2) Watch the dragon boat rowers practice

     If exercising early in the morning is not your thing but you still want to see what Manila Bay can offer, head out to Harbour Square's bayside and witness the rower's practicing.

     Oh, they sometimes practice late afternoons too. This shot was taken while on board a boat for the sunset dinner cruise.

3) Sit back, relax, and enjoy Manila Bay
     Find a space along the Roxas Boulevard boardwalk under those tall coconut trees any time of
     the day.  Or head to Harbour Square's boardwalk where it gives you an equally strategic view of 
     Manila Bay with the anchored yachts of Manila Yacht Club as your foreground.

     Early mornings and around sunset gives you so much to see, experience and enjoy.

    Witness the daily life around the area unfold before your eyes.  Cigarette and food vendors,
    families having a picnic, lovers on a date, children running around or walking their dogs, a few
    people fishing, masseuse for hire, and a lot more.

4) Take the Manila Bay Sunset Dinner Cruise

     There is no better way to fully experience the beauty than to join the Manila Bay Sunset Cruise.
     Food, music, camaraderie, fireworks and a beautiful sunset is just pure magic!

      There are two companies offering daily Manila Bay cruise. Check the links and reviews for a
      better choice.

       Sun Cruises
       Prestige Cruises


  1. Hi
    I noticed you don’t have an arcticle about ecotourism in Brazil...
    It’s actually something I can write for your as a guest blogger.
    Let me know if you are interested =)


  2. My opinion is that there are few known things about the Phillipines, and that people should be encouraged to discover other amazing places, as well. Manila Bay seems to be a special harbour, that is waiting to be explored by any traveler.

  3. The city of Manila is found by the scenic Manila Bay shores. This is a favorite place of many people and it is because you can watch here the best sunset.

  4. I really appreciate your professional approach. These are pieces of very useful information that will be of great use for me in future.

  5. Surprisingly, not many posts about Manila Bay. Kudos to you making one and showing everyone the beautiful side of Manila

  6. How cool is Manila bay? No words can describe! I really want to live in a condominium near Manila bay and enjoy these scenes day and night!
