The green ‘sand’ of Boracay Island

No, the sand isn’t really green. It is an algae growth which covers the shoreline of Boracay’s White Beach; an occurrence which typically happens during the hot months in this tropical paradise. A study says that the algae can be attributed by the worsening pollution in the island but locals say that the algae growth is just a signal that summer is coming. Some even believed that it helps in producing the powdery white sand which Boracay Island is famous for. The algae usually disappears during rainy or cold months.

Whatever it is, it cannot stop locals and tourists alike in enjoying Boracay Island’s beauty. I just hope that we’ll be more responsible in the places we visit like this one.
