Philippines: Environmentalists criticise artificial beach in Manila Bay

A man-made seashore within the Philippine capital, Manila is inflicting controversy with some environmentalists arguing it’s dangerous for the surroundings.

The ”Manila Bay Sands” venture is a part of a much wider $20m govt plan to wash up Manila Bay.

The white sand is constructed from overwhelmed dolomite rock which is extracted from huge dolomite mines.

The Kalikasan Atmosphere Team says the mining operations are damaging and the bogus sand can hurt marine lifestyles.

Regardless of this, 1000’s of Manila’s citizens had been flocking to the seashore to catch a glimpse of town’s freshest new speaking level.
