Paraw sailing, island hopping to be regulated
MetadataShow full item record
Paraw or sailboats and island hopping activities on this resort island will not be banned, according to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). However, it will only be temporarily suspended up to two weeks from the reopening to give way for the marine biodiversity assessment as well as in crafting regulations for them, DENR Undersecretary Benny Antiporda said in a press conference Friday. Boracay’s soft reopening is scheduled on October 26 following an 11-day dry run, which started on October 15.
