Campomanes Bay is a great tourist destination, not only for summer, but for any time of the year. It also adds a dimension to the allure of Sipalay City, which is famed as the copper and gold belt of Negros Island.

The bay has an existing port that caters to medium-sized seacraft (pump boats). The enclosed shape of the bay and the presence of islets in its entrance provide calm waters even in harsh weather conditions.

The bay opens to a wide expanse of coral gardens with various species of corals and fish.
