Leisurely afternoon at Legazpi’s port

Mornings at the Embarcadero are beautiful especially on a clear day with stunning views of Mt. Mayon. In the late afternoon, especially a lazy one, a stroll along the promenade near Legazpi’s port is just as beautiful.

Like mornings where the locals walk along the coastal breakwater at the base of Kapuntukan Hill (aka, The Sleeping Lion), the cement wall near the port is popular also from afternoon to night when this stretch is lighted. Its similar to Manila Bay’s but with less traffic and vendors.

Legazpi is actually a slow city, unlike that of Naga which is bustling with economic activity with the attendant problems common in such highly urbanized areas. But it is getting there.

Estan Cabigas is freelance photographer, blogger and writer based in Makati City, the Philippines. A true blue Cebuano, he makes stunning images and meaningful photo stories. His work has been published in local and international publications including National Geographic Magazine, Geo (Germany), Sunday Times Magazine (London) and other publications. He is also a peripatetic traveler and has traveled to all 81 Philippines provinces. I'm open for work, collaborations and inquiries, including hotel, restaurant and site features and reviews.
