The 140-meter beach area will now receive tourists every 8-11 AM and 2-6 PM

Manila Bay’s so-called dolomite beach has reopened its shores to the public over the weekend following the ease of quarantine restrictions in the capital under Alert Level 3.

On Sunday, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) reported that the rehabilitated bay received a “strong public reception.”

“We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from the public, which made the reopening of the Manila Bay Dolomite Beach successful,” Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu said. 

Despite the influx, Climatu said that health and safety protocols were still strictly observed by the visitors, assuring that DENR personnel and security marshals are manning the area.

In addition, Climatu said there is no need for people to be vaccinated to enter the premises, but wearing a face mask is mandatory while using a face shield is optional.

Visitors are also not allowed to bring food, drinks, and pets, as well as picking up dolomite sand, spit, and litter in the area.




The dolomite beach will continue to be open to the public with a maximum capacity of 300 people every day from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM, Philstar reported.

Check out below some of the netizen’s mixed reactions regarding the reopening of the dolomite beach.

Last year, the government overlaid mounds of artificial white sand partly over Manila bay’s naturally gray shoreline. Despite the criticisms it received from some sectors and the public, the project ensued and has been maintained to retain its “white sand” and cleanliness in the area. – WhatALife.ph
