Manila Bay, the South China Sea Bay, is almost completely land-locked, located in the southwest of Luzon Island. It is one of the world's largest harbors with an area of 2,000 square kilometers (770 square miles). The widest point is 58 kilometers (36 miles). Corregidor Island, 48 kilometers (30 miles) west of Manila, divides the 18 kilometers (11 miles) wide bay entrance into two straits: the South and the north, which are safer to navigate and 3 kilometers (2 miles) wide. The northern and northeastern shores of the Gulf are connected with the central plain of Luzon, and the coastal waters are shallow. They are the largest commercial fishing grounds in the Philippines. Port Manila is located in the easternmost part of Manila Bay, including the north port for inter-island navigation and the south port for international navigation. The Bataan Peninsula and the mountains of Central Cordillera form a natural barrier, making Manila Bay an excellent anchorage. Near Southeast Asia, the Bay was commercially important as early as the Spanish colonial period in 1571. On May 1, 1898, the U.S. Army destroyed the Spanish fleet in the decisive naval battle of the American-Spanish War (the Battle of Manila Bay).
Manila bay is one of the places where you can witness one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. Sadly during the past years the bay was being polluted with wastes that are from establishments that surrounds the area. But currently with the initiation of the present government, the rehabilitation of the area was conducted. Hopefully it will be continued for the years to come so that many of us will still be able to see how beautiful this place is.
The scenery is very good. Blue sky, white clouds, beach and waves make people feel relaxed and happy. The sea is very clean and clear. January is the coolest season in the Philippines. The temperature is about 30 degrees and the humidity is not very high. So it won't sweat as much as in summer. It feels really good.
I went to Manila Bay for Harbour View Restaurant to try out the Manila Light Rail. I had to say that the people of the Philippine capital were friendly. I felt an auntie who saw me bring my parents to Manila for the first time and never did their metro. I took us all the way to the station to buy tickets and brush up tickets. I was very responsible. Every stop told me how to get out of the station. All in all, I would like to pool Auntie's honor thumb up on behalf of my thanks, walking down the light rail all the way to the seaside, and encountering a string of Jeepney Manila Bay open restaurants, which are very good at picking up seats, presumably abandoned wharfs.
the spectacular sunset view of manila bay has always and ever been wonderful sight to behold. and manila bay is the heart of Manila
