Manila Baywalk is a popular leisure centre for city dwellers. Just along Roxas Boulevard, past Manila Yacht Club and bordered by the US Embassy and Cultural Center of the Philippines, this two-kilometre stretch is a favourite sunset-watching location.
This sidewalk is famous for its golden skies, calm bay waters, palm trees and ornamental plants that sway in the bay’s breezes as well as for the yachts anchored in front of the harbour’s cafes and restaurants.

When it comes to relaxation, there’s almost everything on offer here, ranging from outdoor restaurants, open-air bars, dance spots, cafes and live bands. This area is also popular with sports and health aficionados, bicycle riders, joggers, and walkers.
The much improved promenade is now known as Harbour Square. Baywalk nightly cruises are also available to experience the colourful night lights of the area from the boat's top deck.
