'Overmarketed, overpromised': Save the Gigantes Islands before it's too late
MetadataShow full item record
After Boracay Island underwent a six-month rehabilitation closure last year, tourists have been flooding the Gigantes Islands in Carles, Iloilo because of its promise of white-sand beaches, highly comparable to that of Boracay. As early as 2010, the promising chain of islands has been gaining popularity especially on social media for its crystal-clear water and lagoons, sand bars, and gigantic rock formations. But now, the tourism department is once again pushing for the temporary closure of Gigantes Islands in the hopes of saving it from the same or even worse fate that Boracay Island had suffered.
