Embarcadero de Legazpi details

During the Spanish era, galleons docked in the ports which brought livelihood and wealth to the city and its neighboring towns. Sadly, due to the events that happened in our history, the trade and income flow that once poured into the port area started to diminish.

Today, Embarcadero de Legazpi once again brings back the glory to Legazpi's port district with its world-class dining, shopping, and entertainment experiences.

Embarcadero de Legazpi offers more than what usual malls in Manila do. Tourists could enjoy a variety of unique activities and amenities like riding a jet ski, a water jeep, and even a helicopter that would take you around the city and even near Mayon Volcano.

Embarcadero de Legazpi also offers a wide range of food choices from its numerous fast food and fine dining restaurants. Due to its natural allure and ambiance, Embarcadero de Legazpi is being likened to the Fisherman's Wharf found in San Francisco, California. Embarcadero de Legazpi opened up several amenities for thrill-seeking and adventurous tourists. You could now try the 350-meter zipline from the lighthouse, kart racing, and the Segway. The Segway is a two-wheeled, self-balancing electric vehicle that is said to be the first in the country.

We got to visit Embarcadero de Legazpi during our CamSur-Albay Road Trip 2014. I was quite disappointed with how Embarcadero de Legazpi seems to be losing its luster. I noticed that several stores are already closed down. Aside from that, it is noticeable that there are few tourists (even locals) in the vicinity. I stayed a bit to see if the nightlife really rocks only to be disappointed. The good part about visiting Embarcadero de Legazpi is that it's a great place to unwind after a long drive.

Overall rating


  1. hi as i was scrolling through the article and saw it being compared to the globally renowned tourist places i was feeling good to know something like this was close however in the end u mentioned that the place was loosing its lusture , any specific reason why and what is the reason

    1. Hi Sumit, well it seems like the place is not maintained well. Aside from that, the shops seems to be closing one by one. It probably means that there are fewer and fewer people who visit.

  2. I hope to visit that place in the future.
