Legazpi's waterfront lifestyle hub, commercial and entertainment center
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.
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.
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.
This commercial hub being likened to the Fisherman’s Wharf of San Francisco, California offers a wide range of food choices–from fast food to fine dining. Fast food joints and Cafes include Kitaro Sushi, La Mia Tazza, Mang Inasal, Bigg’s Diner, Gerry’s Grill, Pacific Blue Dive Center and Cafe, Gillian’s Sea Wharf and more! It has recently opened Cisyd Bar Resto Paluto, the first “dampa” style restaurant in the city, located at the mall’s seaside promenade.
True to its concept as a “lifestyle mall” more than a mere “shopping mall”, several shops have opened at Embarcadero including Sandugo, Cinderella, Bratpack, F2M, and ResToeRun. There’s even a premium brands store that offers genuine posh signature bags like Chanel, Gucci, and Hermes that one could only find either in Manila or abroad. The Embarcadero also hosts the city’s first Puregold Supermarket.
For adventure-seekers, the mall now offers several activities such as 350-meter zipline from a lighthouse, kart race, and segway. Segways are two-wheeled, self-balancing electric vehicles. The segways at Embarcadero are the first in the country. Other exciting activities include parasailing, Jet Ski, paddle boat, and water jeep. Soon, helicopter rides will be offered for those who want to capture a panoramic view of Mt. Mayon and the Albay Gulf. A modern bowling lane is also guaranteed to provide loads of fun for families and groups of friends.
As a veritable one-stop shop, Embarcadero also offers a marine-themed hotel called Ellis Ecotel. The luxurious yet affordable hotel offers guests the illusion of seafaring while taking in the breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and the looming Mayon Volcano.
Embarcadero is also the home of the Suncore Diagnostic Clinic and the Excelsior Spa.
The mall’s spacious round Celebration Plaza, which is at the heart of the commercial building, is a favorite venue for events. The 1,050-square-meter venue hosted the city’s first international concert featuring balladeer David Pomeranz. In 2010, it hosted the Amazing Race Asia Season 4 Viewing Party celebrating episode 5 which featured Albay as a pit stop of the popular reality TV show.
Embarcadero also hosts nightly events at the Celebration Plaza like band competitions, pageants, dance contents, and boxing tournaments, making it the city’s official entertainment rendezvous for all classes.
