Roxas City in the small province of Capiz is an ever-evolving city that takes its pride in its marine life. It may not be a go-to destination for most people but there are still quite a several places you can visit and plenty of activities to do.
Here we list some of the most picture-perfect tourist spots in Roxas City.
Manuel Roxas Ancestral House – Given that the city is named after the 4th Philippine President and Capiz native, Manuel A. Roxas, it is only fitting that one of the famous Capiz tourist spots is his ancestral house. A Spanish-inspired stone house, this historical site might not be as grand as some, but visitors will be able to get a sense of what it is like growing up in that era.

Baybay Beach – Just a few minutes’ drive from the city proper, you’ll be able to see a stretch of fine dark-colored sand. It is quite popular even amongst the locals since the beach is quite big. Visitors can either go swimming or just chill by the beach and watch the sunset.
