Climate

Navotas, as with the rest of the Philippines, lies entirely within the tropics. Its proximity to the Equator means that the temperature range is very small, rarely ever going lower than 25°C and going higher than 33°C. However, humidity levels are usually very high which makes it feel much warmer. It has a distinct dry season from November to May, and a wet season from June to October, when it is constantly battered by typhoons from the Pacific Ocean.

The city has a total population of 230,403 as of 2000 census.

Dubbed as the "Fishing Capital of the Philippines", Navotas is considered to be a very important fishing community with 70% of its population deriving their livelihood directly or indirectly from fishing and its related industries like fish trading, fish net-mending, and fish producing having marginal percentage of inter-island fish producers. Navotas occupies a portion of the Metropolitan Manila bound in the west with shoreline of Manila Bay, which is a strategic coastal front and suitable for all kinds of vessel.

Navotas is part of the informal sub-region of Metro Manila called CAMANAVA. This sub-region, aside from Navotas, includes the cities of Caloocan, Malabon, and Valenzuela.

Navotas is envisioned as a Marina City in a well-ordered urban landscape serving as a regional fishing hub with a healthy and empowered community in a sustainable environment governed by a transparent, dedicated, responsive and financially self sufficient local Government.
