ZAMBOANGA City Mayor Ma. Isabelle Climaco-Salazar has motored together with a group of local government and security officials to the Eleven Islands, a hidden treasure in the east coast, to check on its potentials vis-à-vis the city’s thrust to promote community tourism.
The 11 Islands can be accessed through the village of Panubigan by small boat.
Some of the islands are under the jurisdiction of Panubigan while the rest are under the village of Dita.
Sans the challenges, Eleven Islands can be another prime attraction for Zamboanga City, given its natural, unspoiled wonders.
“We are exploring the community tourism potentials of our 11 islands,” Salazar said as she expressed awe in the beauty of the untapped treasure.
She said measures will be undertaken to look into the possibility of making the Eleven Islands a tourist attraction in Zamboanga.
Those who accompanied Salazar in the inspection over the weekend included city government officials, some members of the City Council, police, military and village officials. (Sunnex)
