The beach of Lapad is still not open to swimmers as the security fences remain in place. The Sunset Beach was planned to be opened at the end of June but that deadline has long since passed and by the looks of the latest photos it will be a few days yet.
Swimmers have been spotted ducking under the fences and enjoying the beach but the rest of the facilities on the beach are still being finished. When completed the beach area will be three times larger than the old beach and will include cafe bars, restaurants and shops. The sun loungers and sun umbrellas have arrived but they will have to wait a little bit longer for their first customers.
