Manila Bay

Luzon Island, Philippines

Lovers, bicyclists and nature enthusiasts all gather on the edge of Manila Bay, the natural harbor that carves into the uppermost island of the Philippines. Close to the busy waterfront of fast-paced Metro Manila -- the “Pearl of the Orient”-- this is the ideal spot for a twilight pause. Witnesses to the bay’s famously layered sunset see the sky splinter into a hundred shades of orange and pink; they gaze west towards the South China Sea and even Vietnam, which lie just beyond the mouth of the bay.
