Manila, Philippines

Manila Baywalk

Benson Kua

This coconut-lined boardwalk along Roxas Boulevard is a destination for its sunsets and ocean views. Runners will love getting in their exercise on the wide brick and concrete path, which spans about a mile (1.6 km) along the coast, away from traffic. The Baywalk can be accessed on the north end near the Cultural Center of the Philippines ramp, or the south end near the Manila Hospital.

For a longer run, Luneta Park is one of our favorite parks for running in Manila and is only 0.5 km north of the northern end the path, passing the U.S. Embassy. Sidewalks continue further in both directions, but traffic is rather heavy away from the Baywalk.
