The Baywalk is a popular seaside promenade and beachfront overlooking Manila Bay along Roxas Boulevard in the Manila, Philippines. The Baywalk is a two-kilometre stretch from the US Embassy near Rizal Park up to the Cultural Center of the Philippines just past the Manila Yacht Club. It is a popular venue at night with open-air cafés that serve local cuisine while onlookers may watch the Manila sunset. Many of the venues also feature music and live band performances. Local artists frequent the area and free mime, acrobatics, and other art performances can sometimes be found along the strip. Several statues of national figures and other notable people can be found in the Baywalk.

It's a really nice scenic walk. On a cool day there is a nice breeze. Be careful when giving money to the poor though because when they see you, they would crowd around you all begging for money
The best time to be here is during sunset. Manila bay has the most beautiful sunset 😉
Beautiful view, but the place needs to be cleaned up, trash is all over the shoreline. People visiting and living around the area must stop leaving their trash around the place, it's the responsible way to go.
I love the sunset very much. Manila Bay sunset is one of the best sunset view.
Great place to watch the sunset and to have your daily walk or run. But seing dog and catpoop owned by vendors isn't a nice thing to see.
First advice be aware of the horse drivers and horse carts. Other than that this is a very beautiful place. Memorizing views. Beach is not clean due to human activities. But still looks beautiful. Fishermen catch fish from the sticks. Do not talk with horse drivers for any reason. They are everywhere. Specially the white color cart. All of the horse riders and cart riders seems to be thugs and cheaters. 100% cheaters. They will charge you 500 pesos if you get in the cart. No matter how Short you travel. If you don't pay they will flight with you. So remember not to try any horse carts for any reason. They will try to talk very friendly. But in the end you will be busted. It had happened to me and I had to waste my money few times. Please check my photos, remember the white cart. Never ever try that. Or any of the horse carts. Other than that manila baywalk is very attractive. You must visit here in the morning and in the evening. Can take beautiful photos. Not many restaurants or food stalls near the manila baywalk. So better be prepared and come here. Must visit place in Manila. Highly recommend this place without horse carts and horse riders.
I love Manila Bay. Just wish they would not have the Drainage flow straight into the Bay.
It just ain't how it used to be. Everything's dirty and dull. There is still a view if you don't mind the mess.
I was here in this amazing place in 2012, I took a taxi to Bay walk with a friend. The house of Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos, Past President of the Philippines was so big by Philippine standards.I can understand why they cloose this spot the views are magnificent. The house was guarded by soldiers who would not let me in any further than the gate, but did allow me to take some photos but no videos. Manila is the capital of the Philippines. It is located in the northern island of Luzon close to Quezon City. Quezon City was once the capital, from 1948 to 1976, and is actually the most populous city. Manila is the second most populated city with a population of 1,652,171. It is just under 15 square miles, making it one of the most densely populated cities in the Philippines and in the world. It is where the seat of the Philippine government is located. Metro Manila consists of many other surrounding cities, including Pasay, Paranaque, Mandaluyong, Makati, Taguig, Pasig, Quezon City, and more. It is within just a 1 to 2 hours drive from other cities such as Cavite City, Tagaytay, Botangas, and even Angeles City. Manila has two international airports and a Light Rail Transit System of 11 different above ground train stations. There are also taxis, motorcycles with sidecars known as tricycles, and the most popular form of transportation known as Jeepneys, which are jeep-like public utility vehicles. They have their roots from World War II with the surplus jeeps that were sold to the Philippines who painted them in bright native colours and began using them and producing them for family and tourist transportation. The city is home to 1,780,148 people in 2015, forming the historic core of Metro Manila, the capital region of the Philippines. The metropolitan area, which includes the much larger Quezon City and the Makati Central Business District, is one of the most populous urban areas in the world. Manila is also the most densely populated city proper in the world, with 41,515 people per square kilometre. The term Manila is commonly used to refer to either the whole metropolitan area or the city proper. Manila is located on the eastern shore of the Manila Bay on one of the finest harbours in the country. The city is composed of 16 districts: Binondo, Ermita, Intramuros, Malate, Paco, Pandacan, Port Area, Quiapo, Sampaloc, San Andres, San Miguel, San Nicolas, Santa Ana, Santa Cruz, Santa Mesa and Tondo. The city has six congressional districts for the lower house of the Philippine Congress. Manila was once ruled by the Kingdom of Tondo before it briefly became a province of the Majapahit Empire. During the Bruneian invasion of the Philippines, Sultan Bolkiah of Brunei captured Seludong (a village in modern-day Manila) and renamed it Maynilà, a Tagalog term referring to the presence of the nila shrub. Maynilà became a vassal state of the Sultanate of Brunei, established to overpower Tondo. In 1571, conquistadors arrived from Mexico, across the Pacific Ocean, and founded present-day Manila in what is now the Intramuros district. Spanish missionaries soon Christianized the city, incorporated Tondo and built some of the oldest churches in the country, including San Agustin Church ( a World Heritage Site ). The conquistadors renamed the area Nuevo Reino de Castilla ( New Kingdom of Castille ). Manila became the centre of Spanish activity in the Far East and one end of the Manila–Acapulco galleon trade route linking Spanish America with Asia, one of the earliest examples of globalization. Because of its central location on Pacific trade routes, Manila received the moniker "Pearl of the Orient". Spanish rule of the Philippine archipelago lasted for more than three centuries, until 1898. At various points during the long colonial period, there were local revolts, Chinese insurrections, pirate attacks, earthquakes, Dutch raids and invasion attempts, and a British occupation of the city. Order was usually quickly restored and the city returned to the business of trade.
If you are looking for a place to take a walk on a Sunday morning then this is the place to be where you get amused to see some stuffs being sold. Here you will find sporting goods for biking, fishing, sports wear and some motorcycle accessories during Sundays. You can find fishes here as well, caught by reel fishermen in the area.
One of the famous landmark in the metro. This place is always busy. People love to walk around the shore.
A popular spot from dawn to a sunset for joggers, cyclists, tourists, and romantic couples. But under the moonlight, the concrete sidewalk and dirt medians become home to countless families homeless in the night...
