Written by Bert Dalida

White sands confiscated at the Caticlan airport have already been returned to the beaches of Boracay.

This is what Municipal Auxiliary Police or MAP Deputy Chief Rodito Absalon has confirmed, regarding the more or less five sacks of sands and small corals that were recovered from the mentioned airport last week.

According to Absalon, the sands and corals were confiscated from local and foreign tourist on the island who took them as souvenirs.

Airport employees recovered sands placed in plastic water bottles while some corals were seen inside the bags.

In line with this, Absalon reminds the tourists that taking sands and corals from the island’s beaches is strictly prohibited.

Meanwhile, the MAP is still looking for an appropriate area to put the confiscated corals back.
