A place where you can have your wedding reception, a date with your loved one, or just to ooh and aah. ;p
It is well-known in our country that former First Lady Imelda Romualdez Marcos "orchestrated" the construction of this "guesthouse", built of coconut wood & shells, to accommodate Pope John Paul II for his 1981 visit, although its EXTRAVAGANCE turned him off so much that he refused to stay there.
Perhaps one of Manila's most enduring charms is the beautiful sunset across Manila Bay. On a clear day, the red orange burst of color across the horizon from Roxas Blvd (Dewey Blvd in the American colonial days and some years after that until nationalist sentiment prompted a change in the famous thoroughfare's name) is simply marvelous. It serves as very fitting backdrop to families enjoying their time together, or for lovers' most romantic (but not so intimate, OK?) pursuits.
The best place to enjoy Manila Bay's sunset is along the Promenade in Roxas Blvd, across the newly (and wonderfully) restored Rajah Sulayman Park and the historic Malate Church. Amidst these grand, old world ambiance, lovers (and families) will surely have a great time enjoying this free, almost-daily (except during inclement weather, of course) grand show.
Enjoy and send me pictures of your Manila Bay sunset!
People gather around this live mannequin who does a periodic or per set performance in the middle of the street (the last time I saw him he was near the Blue Bay Grill Restaurant). Put some coins in the box near his feet and he will move/dance, and just keep still otherwise.
the manila sunset is one of the most beautiful in the world. there are restaurants and bars along roxas boulevard where you can eat or drink while watching the sunset. another location is ccp complex near westin philippine plaza. its a romantic place for your girl.
One of the tourst night spot here in Manila give you the opportunity to walk around with your friends, watching cool sunset, eating dinner with nice amusement while listening music to the band who played makes your night relaxing. As there are lots of restaurants here, you can choose where you like to eat. A place where you can hang on whole night. The afternoon i went here were i missed the sunset but the second time around i did took good views of the sunset already thru my cellphone.
Action in the Malate District starts at about 9 pm, so whenever we usually arrive at the area early, we always drop by Baywalk to kill time (hehehe). There are some activities around here like Henna tattoing and for something to see, refer to the next photo.
Roxas Boulevard is the main promenade of Manila. This is a good place to pass away your time in Manila day or night. Overlooking Manila Bay, the promenade has open air cafes and benches where one can sit and do some people-watching or witness the famous Manila sunset.
The main plaza fronting the Malate church is the central attraction of the Manila baywalk. It has a fountain and a statue of Rajah Sulayman in front the baroque church.
Built during the Marcos era to promote beauty and culture in the Philippines, CCP is a major venue for the ballet, plays, and other shows.
The CCP complex is right on Manila Bay and a great place for afternoon strolls or watching the sunset.
It is a relatively new name for the commercialized promenade along Roxas Bouleverd. Running from the Philippine Navy Headquarters near Pablo Ocampo Street (formerly Vito Cruz) to American Embassy near TM Kalaw Street, it is a strip blessed with spectacular sunsets, sumptuous dishes served outdoors and lively nights of music and the now famous sperical street lamps made of multicolored lightbulbs.
When partygoers and performers go home and shops close at early morning, the walk becomes a paradise for both morning joggers and bikers. The people will be very few by noontime but in the afternoon, it will again be full of romantic students, locals and tourists waiting for the sun's daily showcase. Street lights will then light up and woderful aromas of delicacies will fill the air signifying the beginning of yet another wonderful evening.
Scorching heat of the tropical afternoon sun is not much of a big deal as the avenue is lined with trees. What spoils the fun is high tide that includes strong waves that splashes sea water on the walk. There'd barely be any place to run too when a typhoon's approaching. But who'd be there anyway in afternoons when the sun's behind the clouds?
Take a stroll or a long walk along the waterfront that also runs along Roxas Blvd. It is a nice walk where you can see joggers , bicycle riders and sadly many homeless people. You get wonderful views of the bay! I like going early in the morning or in the evening. Don't go in the evening if you feel nervous around homeless people or thuggy looking guys though! Because there will be some!
The Baywalk area of Manila, just south of the US embassy on Roxas Boulevard, is the best place to see the sunset. The Baywalk is lined with outdoor bars and food stands, some even sporting live music, but you don't have to eat or drink anything to enjoy the beauty of the spectacle. While Manila's foul air is usually a detriment, the one good thing it does bring to the lives of millions here is beautiful sunsets over the bay. And the locals definitely appreciate it! Just go to the Baywalk and you'll see.
Manila Sunset is really beautiful. We got to enjoy this on our visit to Mall of Asia in Manila. At approximately 6pm, I quickly went to the mall seaside boulevard and took pictures of the whole episode.
Harbor Square is situated near CCP in Roxas Boulevard. It's a great place to hang out & view the famous Manila Bay sunset. It is a short walk to the terminal pier of Sun Cruises for fastcraft to Corregidor Island. Manila Yacht Club is also nearby. Plenty of restos & bars to choose from wherein we can also find Jollibee. Clothing & other items are sold in the area.
This was a very nice location to take a stroll with the outdoor cafe/bars/entertainers and food vendors.. at first i felt a bit tense with the locals and few homeless begging, i guess i stuck out.. but felt more at ease as i walked and watched my surrounding.
Also this location i had my first taste of the local Beer San Miguel Light..tasted very good... As i sat an watch a performer singing american pop songs with a slight out of pick tone of voice.. but it was pleasant and enjoyable. lol
Philipino Idol ur next big star...lol
Baywalk Manila is one of the most exciting ways to enjoy the sunset across the Manila Bay. The bay walk at Manila is one of the most sought after pursuit by the families enjoying their time together. Manila Bay is the harbor that serves the port of Manila and the entrance is 19 km wide.
The best place to enjoy the sunset at baywalk Manila is along the Promenade in Roxas Boulevard. It is also a popular place amongst the young who would like to be here with their near and dear ones. During our stay in Bayview hotel, my husband and I never missed our chance to experience the Manila bay sunset. We brought a big bag of knick-knacks (our term for easy to eat finger food) and big bottle of water. Then we looked for a good spot to sit and enjoy our food while waiting for the beautiful sunset. It was such a wonderful experience. ;o)
Baywalk Manila is also a popular venue at night with all the open-air cafes and where one can enjoy the local cuisines and watch the Manila sunset. There are lots of restaurants to choose where one would like to eat. All this is also accompanied with music that makes your night relaxing. Especially during Friday and Saturday nights the stages are built where the bands entertain the visitors.
