Bolabog Beach and White Beach are opposite of each other. At the narrowest point these beaches are not even 500 meters apart. Bolabog facing toward east, White Beach facing toward west. However, it seems, as if both beaches were located on two different islands.
Impressions from today, April 26, 2017
White Beach (today)
Because the White Beach lies lee side, there is hardly to feel any wind today. The south part of the beach is quiet free from algeas now. A lot of algeas are still in the middle part just at the height of the Regency Resort. But here at the south it is almost a perfect beach day, and look at these colors!
We don’t want to blame the algeas, do we? Although it is a fact that this phenomenon occures with the algeabloom on its peak. It is also known, that these kind of algeas divest oxygen from the water. So, is it maybe the lack of oxygen that drives these animals out of their habitat.
Wind was less than expected: 15 – 23 knots. Moderate gusts. North/East.
Average Kites (without students) on the water ∼ 75
Forcast: A low pressure is closing in. We are expecting much stronger winds and heavy rain especially for Tuesday, dec. 30.
Tropical Disturbance 99W (LPA) becomes a Tropical Depression 23W (SENIANG) as it gains strength while over the South Philippine Sea, east of Mindanao. 23W (SENIANG) is expected to directly affect most parts of Visayas and Mindanao including Palawan this coming week.
This cyclone will enhance the Northeast Monsoon (Hanging Amihan) – bringing cooler, windy and mostly cloudy conditions with occasional slight to moderate rains along the northern and eastern sections of Luzon..
