New destinations PhilippinesRecently the great Santa Cruz Island located in Zamboanga, was nominated as top 21 beaches in the world by National Geographic Magazine. The magazine said, ‘’ Hardly lacking in gorgeous beaches, the Philippines claims a pink-sand variety, too. The blush color comes from billions of pieces of crushed red organ-pipe coral, seen in every handful of sand.’’

Wanda Corazon T. Teo, Tourism Secretary opined his gratitude and pride because of the citation of the place’s name in the international magazine. She directed Antonio Fernando M. Blanco, Region 9 Director to organize with the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (Tieza) in order to help the local government in the improvement and development of facilities in the island in the form of additional cottages and offering more nature-based recreational activities to the tourists.

To quote Teo, ‘’ the planned development will highlight its conservation and preservation, it being a protected area. Nonetheless, the outcome should enable locals and foreign visitors alike to enjoy the island’s beauty but still strictly maintaining it as a day destination. We would like to attract genuine eco-tourists as they take ‘responsible, ethical and sustainable tourism’ to heart.’’ Majority of the carriers fly to Zamboanga City with good number of hotels and resorts under their umbrella as well.
