One of the benefits of living in a small city by the sea, is the proximity to the water. It’s fairly easy to drive to the beach or seaside, such as Dumaguete’s iconic Rizal Boulevard; but also because being in a smaller city unlike busy ports like Manila or Cebu, means that there aren’t as many ships coming in to block these kinds of views.
The city of Dumaguete faces the east, so it’s more of a sunrise place than a sunset one. But even so, it doesn’t diminish this kind of serene view, made even more beautiful by a wonderfully clear sky dotted with the pinkish tinge of the setting sun.
