Despite the storm signal number 1 that has been raised for Aklan due to typhoon Pablo, swimming on the white beach of Boracay is still safe.
This is what Life Guard Supervisor Miguel “Mike” Labatiao has said during an interview this morning.
He said the waves in the front beach are not that rough, therefore swimming is still safe.
However, the life guards are still monitoring at the beach line to watch over and observe the situation, and to give warnings to swimming tourists.
He added that they could not prohibit swimming at the front beach right away.
Nonetheless, he said, at the moment, they are not allowing swimmers to go deeper or further than 20-50 meters from the beach line for their safety.
Meanwhile, Baranggay Officials, Tanods and Malay Auxiliary Police or MAP has been assigned to watch over and ensure the safety of swimmers at Puka Beach in Yapak.
