We welcome you to our slice of paradise on Camiguin, one that we are happy to share with you.
Balai sa Baibai is a Bisayan phrase that literally means “house by the beach”, it also plays on the Thai term “sabai-sabai” which means to relax and chill out.

And this is exactly what we the owners, Cocoy and Elden and the BsB team want you to do – sit back, relax, enjoy Camiguin and let Balai sa Baibai take care of you.
