The beach front of Boracay will be clear again once the wind and bamboo wave breakers will be removed.

Said breakers in station 1 beach front will soon be removed by the Boracay Redevelopment Task Force (BRTF) and establishment owners after the Habagat or Southwest monsoon and the coming in of Amihan season or Northwest monsoon.

According to BRTF, they will start removing the breakers after the Habagat.

Wave breakers are used to protect the establishments during Habagat against strong winds while bamboo wave breakers are to protect beach front establishments from sand erosion.

Meanwhile PAGASA officially declared the coming of Amihan season which also the bases of the Department of Tourism (DOT) as the start of peak season on the island of Boracay.
