Information about Roxas Boulevard
Roxas Boulevard is a prominent seaside promenade in Metro Manila in the Philippines. The boulevard, which follows Manila Bay's shoreline, is widely renowned for its coconut palms and sunsets. The split highway has come to represent Filipino tourism, which is known for its yacht club, hotels, restaurants, shops, and parks.
In the 1910s, the boulevard was finished. Originally known as Cavite Boulevard, it was renamed Dewey Boulevard in honor of American admiral George Dewey, whose forces defeated the Spanish navy in the Battle of Manila Bay in 1898, Heiwa Boulevard in late 1941 during the Japanese occupation, and finally, Roxas Boulevard in the 1960s in recognition of President Manuel Roxas, the country's fifth president.
