“Boracay is a small island in the Visayan archipelago, in the Philippines. It is located about 300 kilometers south of Manila […] Possessing several large white sand beaches, it has since the 1970s become a very tourist destination. It is accessible by boat from Panay, where the airport is located, just across the strait that separates them. In 2018 the Philippine government announced the closure of the island to foreigners due to excessive pollution. "
