Paseo del Mar
Visit Paseo Del Mar, Zamboanga's most beautiful leisure park, and experience the city’s unique culture, stunning sights, and exciting nightlife.
While you’re strolling along the walkway of Paseo del Mar, you’ll notice that time here is slow — people seem to be in no rush and they take the time to bask in the beautiful seascape facing the park. There’s a myriad of attractions here — tribe people serenading visitors, colourful boats passing by, and locals known as Badjao enticing the crowd as they show their diving tricks. Sunsets in this place make people stop and stare — the blazing red-orange hue of the sun spreading across Basilan and Sta Cruz islands is nothing short of picturesque. After sunset, stay a little longer for the Paseo Del Mar nightlife — an exciting mix of live bands, food, and colourful lights.
