In terms of age group, most of the tourists are in the 13-59 years old age group with 62 tourists, while there were six that are 0-12 years old, and four were recorded that are 60 and up.
The Boracay Island was closed off to tourists for more than a month; since the national government placed the province of Aklan under the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) status last August 1 due to the rising cases of COVID-19.
On September 8, the Island was officially opened to domestic tourists after the province was placed under a much-eased quarantine classification.
Before the temporary closure, more than 35,000 tourists have visited Boracay. This was the highest number of tourist arrival since October 2020.
