Paseo del Mar should always be on your list when you visit Zamboanga. It is a go-to evening place even locals and tourist alike. The Dancing Fountain would make squeal with delight, try the famous Knicker Bocker and dine with Mano Mano. Their singers are plainly Wow! You would expect the place to be full once the evening strikes!

Paseo del Mar is one of my favorite places in Zambo when I want to go on a food trip. You'll definitely find something interesting to try like the famous knickerbocker, Alavar seafood, and a whole lot more. It's also a great place to chase sunset.

see Zamboanga's sunset along Zamboanga's recently-made enclosed boulevard of restaurants and cafes with large singing fountain. it is famous for early morning walks or jogs, and lively night scene. Every cafes has its own music band, and gimmickry such as stand up comic. Food is good. always a crowd every night.

It was my first visit in Zamboanga that I came to know this place. It was a big place by the bay which offers a lot of food stalls, restaurants and there's a live band playing the might away. Too crowded with party people drinking cold bottle of beers. I had their fruit version of halo-halo that evening. It was... More

In the morning, people go there to jog and enjoy the view of the sea. However, as the sunsets and the moon lightens the sky, it transforms to a place where you can drink, eat and relax. You may also enjoy watching the fountain dance with the beat for an hour. Its a great place to relax and enjoy the... More

You have to visit this place. Better go at night around dinner time. There lots of resto and bars. You can walk around the bay area. We went here several times.

Great place by the bay to visit at night (when it cools off) and have a snack or beer and listen to the music. Order the French fries and calamari for a nice taste treat ...
