Hundreds flocked to the so-called Baseco Beach in Manila despite warnings that the water there is still not safe for swimming. 

Tents were set up and picnic mats laid out on the sand as children and adults enjoyed the waters of Manila Bay, which experts have said are still very high in coliform content. 

Volunteers meanwhile tried to keep the beach busy by picking up trash left by the beachgoers. They appealed to visitors to keep the area clean.
