It's another gloomy week for the island visitors of Boracay. But those looking for a ray of sunshine can still keep their hopes high since some mornings will still be sunny. Another thing to light up your week is the opening of a new resort on the island giving you another place to visit. There's also a new campaign against violators of local and national laws implemented on the island. Finally, there was a recent demolition on the other side of the island so kindly check the areas you should avoid.
Weather: It’s a rainy week ahead
A gloomy week is looming. It’s expected to have occasional rain and thunderstorms, especially in the afternoon throughout the week. Meanwhile, temperatures for the week will range between 24°C and 29°C . But there will still be some sun for your beach getaway. As soon as the sun rises, activities along the beach like stand-up paddleboarding are already allowed at the beach. Stand-up paddleboards can be rented for at least PhP300 for an hour.
Demolition work in the island continues
Ten establishments along Bulabog Beach were demolished for allegedly failing to comply with the 30-meter beach easement rule of the island . The establishments were originally ordered demolished last month but they were initially given a 10-day temporary restraining order (TRO) by an Aklan court. However, immediately after the TRO period lapsed, the demolition was ordered by the Local Government Unit of Malay. The demolition, according to the Boracay Inter-Agency Rehabilitation Management Group, is part of the continued island rehab.
Belmont Hotel Boracay, the newest addition among the luxury hotels at Boracay Newcoast in Barangay Yapak is now open . The luxurious hotel has 442 varied rooms in total. One of their unique features is the Specially-abled Room for guests with special needs. The hotel also has its own in-house cafe, business center, meeting and function rooms, fitness center, and spa. They also have numerous pools. For those who prefer to swim at the beach, they can also enjoy the exclusive beach of Boracay Newcoast.
Passed Laws and Ordinance: New campaign against violators launched
A new campaign to impose the strict implementation of laws and regulations on the island was recently launched by the Local Government Unit of Malay . The campaign, dubbed as “Bawal ang Pasaway sa Boracay” (Violators are not allowed in Boracay), aims to lessen the number of violations on the island. The LGU targets to lower the number of violators on the following prohibited acts along the beachfront as well as in other parts of the island: littering, smoking, and drinking of alcoholic beverages, bringing of pets, urinating, or defecating. Sand-castle making and fire dancing along the beach were also regulated after the rehabilitation. They are only allowed when event organizers can secure their permits first.
