'Algae make Boracay sand white and cool'
The algal bloom in Boracay Island is a blessing, not a curse to the tourism industry, according to the Regional Ecotourism Committee (REC). Algae contributes to making Boracay’s sand white and cool even under the scorching heat of the sun, said Department of Tourism regional director Helen Catalbas, former chair of the REC. Algal bloom is a seasonal appearance on the beaches of Boracay, particularly in February to June.
