Boracay Beach Closed For Clean-Up After Chinese Tourist Buries Diaper In The Sand




  • A video taken in Boracay, Philippines shows a Chinese woman burying a diaper in the white sand.
  • Meanwhile, her companion washed the child in the water.
  • The said video went viral and Boracay eventually had to be closed for clean-up operations.

The small island of Boracay is one of the most popular tourist spots in the Philippines. So it’s no surprise that the place attracts numerous visitors year in and year out.

Recently, however, one such tourist did something so disgusting that the a portion of the beach had to be closed for clean-up. Apparently, a Chinese woman was captured on video burying a diaper in the white sand while another woman was seen washing her child’s butt on the waters.

Why would anyone do this at a public place – and a beautiful beach, at that?

According to reports, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has confirmed that authorities indeed closed the place for a time in order to conduct cleaning operations because of the incident. The diaper was eventually recovered and was disposed immediately.

Along with the temporary closure, a coliform test was also done to check the island’s waters. Fortunately, the water samples “showed safe levels,” according to DENR.

As of this writing, the woman and her companion’s identities remain unknown.

DENR Undersecretary Benny D. Antiporda also mentioned that the two women have, so far, not yet been identified because the video “wasn’t able to clearly capture them.”

Still, it’s clear that the foreigners violated Boracay’s environmental laws and Bernadette Romulo-Puyat, Secretary of the Department of Tourism (DOT) promised that they will work with locals and tour coordinators to find the women so they can be punished accordingly.
