Manila Bay is a natural harbor in the capital of the Philippines. It is one of the points of entry to the city via maritime vessels. People usually line up its long breakwater for early morning or late afternoon exercise, strolling, or simply sitting on one of the benches in the area to view a spectacular sunset. The harbor area is surrounded by hotels, restaurants, recreation areas, some government offices, etc. Located in the same bay is the famous Corregidor Island, a silent witness to the final stage of the war between the Japanese and the American troops during WWII. I would suggest that you join a very well organized day-tour to the island. Departure area is from the CCP Complex at around 7:00 AM.
Being a native of Manila, I have witnessed how Manila Bay has evolved in time. I remember the days when its waters were still clean and good for swimming, very much unlike today. Its waters are now dirty, smelly and polluted (although some people still take a dip in them once in a while).
One place you may visit in the area is the Manila Ocean Park, the biggest and prime aquarium in the country. From there, you can visit Rizal Park and nearby Intramuros.
