Authorities eased restrictions in the world-famous Boracay on October 1, allowing local tourists to visit the island after more than six months of quarantine as coronavirus infections leveled off. By opening up the paradisiacal Boracay Island in central Philippines with its clear blue waters and picture-perfect coastlines, officials hope to rebuild the tourism sector with its most prized possession. Tourists are required to wear masks while strolling Boracay’s powdery white sand beach, but they’re allowed to take them off while swimming. Consistently voted as a top island destination, Boracay Island normally attracts millions of tourists from around the world each year, with droves of beachgoers from China, South Korea and Japan taking direct flights.
