The city government is planning to construct a P1-million boardwalk with viewing deck at the Sta Cruz Island anytime this year.

Richard Aliangan, Protected Area Management Unit (PAMU) Operations Officer, said that the project is included in  the management plan of Sta Cruz Island.

The project will probably be implemented by July, according to Aliangan.

“Este maga activity bueno para na maga vivientes para pwede sila man appreciate conel nature,” Aliangan said.

Aliangan said that the boardwalk will enable visitors to view the lagoon, an attraction at the Sta. Cruz island.

However, he assured residents that these projects will be low impact so that the island’s natural view will not be destroyed.

Other activities to be introduced in the future include trekking and camping, two activities which will open the island at night to visitors.

The island is currently opened from 7:00 in the morning to 2:00 in the afternoon.

For those interested to go to the island the fees are: P20 entrance fee, P5 terminal fee, and P1,000 boating fee good for 10 persons. (R.G. A A. Go)
