Transcript of Legazpi, Albay

Your Adventure City Legazpi, Albay The Black Sand Beaches of Albay The City of Legazpi is the capital of the Province of Albay and the administrative center of the Bicol Region. Embarcadero redeems the glory days of the Legazpi City port district, which was once the region’s melting pot of economic activity as Spanish trading galleons used to dock in it.
Today, it is opening doors for new investments –bringing in stores and brands that never found its way to this small coastal city.
Embarcadero de Legazpi is a premier waterfront development in the Legazpi City harbor that is emerging as a world-class lifestyle hub both for tourists and the locals.
It has become Bicol region’s premier urban mall and shopping center that gives you an array of lifestyle options –whether for dining, shopping, or entertainment.
More than venues for dining, shopping, and entertainment, Embarcadero is home to one-of-a-kind adventures like water sports.
It is not your typical mall as partygoers can enjoy parasailing, Jet Ski, paddle boat, water jeep, and even helicopter rides for a panoramic view of Mayon Volcano and the cityscape.
Embarcadero de Legazpi. It’s where new and exciting breakthroughs happen. Embarcadero The 156-meter high Ligñon Hill has always been one of Legazpi’s most famous landmarks.

The new Ligñon Hill Natural Park promises to be the city’s best destination offering sights and activities for all types of visitors.

Exotic flowers and orchids are also on sale. Cagsawa Ruins The Legazpi Boulevard is a coastal road network extending from the city’s central business district and port area to the southern barangays, an area deemed as a new frontier of development.
The boulevard is one of the most picturesque seaside roads in the Philippines, with a spectacular view of the Mayon Volcano and the Kapuntukan hill to the north.
The boulevard has also become a favorite recreation area for the city due to its fresh see breeze and excellent view.

and Mining Tourist Destinations The Philippines is rich in beaches with sands of varying shades: from blinding white to warm and golden.
But jet-black sand beaches are very rare.
The province of Albay, because of its volcanic origins, is home to beaches with distinct black sands of the deepest ebony color.
The black sand is a product of millions of years of natural erosion that pulverized the mighty volcanic rocks into fine-textured sands.
Albay’s black sand beaches stretch across the province’s eastern seafront with the best ones found in the towns of Bacacay, Tiwi, Sto. Domingo, and the city of Legazpi. Bacacay Sto. Domingo Tiwi Daraga Church Cathedral of St. Gregory the Great Visita Iglesia Penaranda Park Peñaranda Park has also become a center for recreation and dining with a row of restaurants and bars just a short hop away at the ground floor of the Albay Capitol Annex.
Fastfood joints and some of the city’s best restaurants and cafes along the busy Rizal Street are also just a few hundred meters away.
Visitors and promenaders can enjoy a leisurely stroll around the park and have easy access to these recreation and dining facilities. Resraurants & Cafes Waway's Restaurant Crab Omelet Ginataang Malunggay Kandingga (Bopis) Balay Cena Una House Chef Salad Cena Una Marinated
