Roads in the Philippines
The road was previously called Malecon Drive during the American period. During Spanish rule, it was known simply as Malecón (Spanish for waterfront esplanade) which the road was prior to the reclamation of South Harbor (Port Area) during the late 19th century. It was also known alternatively as Paseo de María Cristina, after the then Queen of Spain Maria Cristina.
It is the northern extension of Roxas Boulevard from Padre Burgos Avenue in Rizal Park to Roxas Bridge (formerly Del Pan Bridge) over the Pasig River. It intersects Andrés Soriano Avenue (formerly Calle Aduana), the main road to Intramuros, via Anda Circle which was named for Spanish Governor-General Simon de Anda y Salazar. North of the river, Bonifacio Drive continues as Marcos Road (Radial Road 10) heading into North Harbor and the district of Tondo.
