Manila dolomite beach closed on April 6 and 7

The Manila Baywalk Dolomite Beach will be closed to the public for two days during the Holy Week.

According to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), the beach will be closed on April 6 (Maundy Thursday) and 7 (Good Friday).

"It will be open to the public on Black Saturday and Easter Sunday from 6 AM to 6 PM," the DENR said on Facebook.

The Manila Baywalk Dolomite Beach — a P389-million beautification project of the DENR — was first opened to the public in September 2020.

The 500-meter beach project was slammed by environmental groups, who called it an environmental hazard and a waste of taxpayer money amid the COVID-19 pandemic. —KBK, GMA Integrated News
