The Cagban Jetty Port at Manoc-Manoc Village is planned to be upgraded by the Jetty Port Administration to make it beautiful.
According to Jetty Port Statistician and Assistant Administrator Mars Bernabe, they will make it enclosed and air-conditioned just like at Caticlan Jetty Port.
Island check-in will also be put up and other facilities for tourists as a component of their implementation.
Bernabe clarified that they are focused on making the jetty port attractive, and that currently, there are no plans to expand it.
The plan is in preparation of the arrival of star cruise ships in the Island of Boracay next year.
Meanwhile, DOT Boracay Officer In-charge, Tim Ticar said that if the plan of the province of Aklan is to be implemented, the move is welcome.
He added that the beautification of roads going to Boracay Island should also be focused upon.
Ticar added that it is the dream of the Department of Tourism that the facilities and amenities of the island are of World Class Standard.
On the other hand, Bernabe said they are awaiting the decision of the Supreme Court regarding the reclamation project of the Caticlan Jetty Port.
