The local government of Malay town, Aklan province formally launched the “Bawal ang Pasaway sa Boracay” campaign to curb the number of violations in Boracay Island.

Malay Mayor Frolibar Bautista said the campaign was launched due to the highly controversial incidents at the resort island a year after it reopened to tourists following a six-month closure.

Last October, a Taiwanese lady tourist who wore a string bikini shocked both residents and tourists.   The Taiwanese tourist claimed she thought there was nothing wrong with what she was wearing.

Last August, a portion of Boracay’s front beach was temporarily closed following a viral video showing Chinese tourists peeing and burying a child’s diaper in the sand.

These incidents prompted the Boracay Inter-Agency Rehabilitation Management Group (BIARMG) to appeal to foreign tourists to respect Filipino values and norms.

Bautista is calling for stricter implementation of both national and local laws and regulations.

He particularly wants local ordinances enforced such as the ban on littering, smoking, drinking of alcoholic beverage, bringing of pets, peeing, or defecating along the beachfront.

Beach activities such as sand-castle making and fire dancing have been regulated and permits must be secured first.
