Boracay Reopening

Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said the island’s reopening “is a crucial first step” to domestic tourism recovery.

The reopening of Boracay, the Philippines’ top destination, to new market sources signals the safe and gradual revival of the country’s tourism industry amid the pandemic, according to Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat.

She said the island’s reopening “is a crucial first step” to domestic tourism recovery, providing the momentum for domestic tourism all over the country. This, she added, gives the country’s tourism industry a glimmer of hope, especially for those counting on tourism to survive.

“What could be a better way to herald the revival of Philippine tourism than the reopening of the world-renowned Boracay Island?” she said.

She stressed that the safety and well-being of tourists and residents remain the top priority of the Department of Tourism (DOT).
