    The place is already overdeveloped and there is no sign of stopping!

    Yes just like Boracay it is likely to shut down for a lot of tourism. Why because a lot of the businesses who have not met the environmental constraints are either unwilling or unable to afford the cost of installing sewage plumbing to tie into the treatment plant.

    Or to purchase and install a 3 layer septic tank. Probably a somewhat expensive item. The status quo of dumping sewage into the ocean is unsustainable. It will destroy the reefs and marine life on which the tourism is based upon.

    It's good they're doing that. I heard some pretty unpleasant things about the water off Sabang Beach, secondhand but from a local doctor. Another reason I don't see going back there.
