The Philippine island of Boracay will be closed to tourists from April 26 for six months, according to BBC.

The reason for the temporary closure is due to concerns of damage to its once pristine shores. Earlier this year, President Rodrigo Duterte said the island was turning into a ‘cesspool’ and threatened to shut it down.

Boracay, known for its white-sand beaches, attracted nearly two million visitors last year.
