The project has been soundly rejected by the government and any future reclamation banned.

not a good idea. dubai didnt have any islands and therefore had to build their own. the phils has 7100 and most of them are uninhabited..bohol is beautiful and has a niche.and it ihas a role----with its lush forests, chocolate hills, tarsier population.....and it's not to outdo macau..

Hey Miglovin. Fully agree. When promoting the concept they (the developers) actually used the palm as an example! This at a time when the palm had huge construction issues (moving sand) and sales that had tanked. The credit for killing reclamation in Panglao should be firmly place at the feet of a group of Alona residents who lobbied hard for the Gov to squash it. Even more impressive they followed through (with the Gov) to ensure any further plans won't get considered. Quite a win!

The Boracay/Caticlan reclamation project is set to go ahead despite extreme resistance from local residents and concerned environmental groups. A TRO was put in place to halt the project but has now been lifted - despite the lack of any environmental feasibility study having been conducted. There is grave concern that altering the coastline in this way could change the flow of sea currents and may contribute to beach erosion in Boracay, among other things.

Hi Sirenna.

It would be a huge shame if this went ahead. While I don't know the specific circumstances of the Boracay reclamation all I can say is that the lobbying can not stop. If you would like me to put in contact with the Panglao advocates please PM me. They me able to offer advice.

Cheers
