Description: Manila North Harbor is located at Manila, Philippines, along the eastern shore of Manila Bay. The Manila North Harbor mainly services inter-island travel across the Philippines. Some of the destinations include: Bulacan, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, Rizal, Cavite, and Batangas. Manila bay is considered to be one of the best natural harbors in Southeast Asia and one of the finest in the world. It has an area of 1,994 km2 and a coastline of 190 km. The entrance is 19 km wide and expands to a width of 48 km. The bay was the setting for the Battle of Manila Bay in 1898 and the siege of Corregidor Island by invading Japanese forces in 1942. Manila Bay still remains important for commerce and industry, including fishing, although rapid urban growth and industrialization are contributing to a decline in water quality and deteriorating marine habitats. The Port of Cagmat is also known as Manila International Cargo Terminal and is operated by International Container Terminal Services Inc. It is one of Asia's major seaports and one of the Philippines's most active ports.
