Safety and security of tourist emphasized by DOT-7
The Department of Tourism - Region 7 called on resort owners and other tourism stakeholders to ensure the safety and security of all tourists. The call came after a Czech national died at a resort in Moalboal town. Twenty-seven-year-old Roman Sgiloda sustained severe injuries after he decided to take a dip by jumping off the verandah of the resort. He thought the water was still deep. Unfortunately, it was already low tide, and it caused him to land on rocks below the veranda .
Projects for Tañon Strait launched
The Tañon Strait Protected Seascapes is the largest protected seascape in the country. It features over 18,000 hectares of live coral along with 5,000 hectares of mangrove. To provide locals and tourists access to the sea, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources built pathways separating private property and the coastal areas. This will allow visitors an unobstructed access to the coastal areas of Tañon Strait .
