Rizal Boulevard

The heart of any city is it's people.  The people of Dumaguete congregate on Rizal Boulevard nightly to explore the shops and restaurants in the area or just people watch. The boulevard stretches 780 meters long, and is shaded by the canopy of several dozen centuries old grand acacia trees. It was named after the national hero Dr. Jose Rizal, who spent a few hours walking on this stretch of beach.

There are several prominate hotels along the Boulevard including the Bethel Guest House, Honeycomb Tourist Inn and La Residencia. The Boulevard is also home to many restuarants and coffee shops. You can enjoy a nice cup of joe at Bo's Coffee on the first floor of a residentail building directly across from the new "I Love Dumaguete" signage on the north end of the strip headed towards the Port Terminal. You may also want to check out the latest addition to the area the new "Renee's Coffee" located on the first floor of the EBT Building below Sun Financial. If you are looking to eat in a hurry the Bethel Guest House offers a buffet style breakfast, lunch and dinner on the first floor which is hard to beat. Just one block behind the Development Bank of the Philippines is another place to grab a quick bite to eat called FoodNet. You must check out the world famous Sans Rival Resto for the most delicious cakes and pastries. 

The Boulevard is a short 15 minute van or trike ride from the Dumuguete Airport and it starts just south of the main port terminal.
