Our Location

Bawbawon is an island located less than a kilometre off the shores of Plaridel, a lovely town located in Misamis Occidental. The island got its name from the shallow water around it, where as in the local dialect “shallow” means “bawbawon” or “baobaoan”.

The island is about two hundred meters off a beautiful coral reef on one side and next to lavish mangrove forests on the other side. The island is home to coconut trees and wild bushes. The beautiful beaches invite for swimming in the clear water and the smooth wind brings the welcomed cooling during the sunny days.

The natural beauty of this island demanded a careful development of the spot, living-up to the eco-tourism requirement for this area. From the water and electricity that comes to the island to the treatment of waste and sewage – we make sure, that we adhere to the high standards you can expect.

Visitors of the island are requested, to contribute their share to the preservation of nature. Waste and especially plastic waste has to be avoided, explorations in the mangroves have to be done with utmost care and divers are not allowed to touch the corals or overly disturb the majestic Manta Rays in their natural habitat.

The Resort

The Bawbawon Beach Resort with its white beaches and tall palm trees not only targets families but is a perfect retreat for young and old. The resort offers:

Bungalows with one king and two queen beds, accommodating up to 6 adults. The windows of the 30 sqm bungalow can be opened on two sides, allowing you to enjoy the view and make you feel like sitting outside on a pergola. An alcove with bed gives you undisturbed view to nature and a spacious terrace let you sit just above the beautiful beach with a wonderful view to the sea.

Luxurious tents with beds for up to 4 adults invite for a lavish Glamping experience in the green of the island. The terrace allows a view into the silent waters around the mangroves, that turn into a mysterious forest, when the solar-powered lights are switched-on in the night, illuminating the trees. Nicely designed centralised showers and restrooms add to the unforgettable camping experience.

An all-day-dining restaurant which offers a splendid breakfast buffet, great lunch and an à la card dinner with daily special. The famous boodle-fight and the sumptuous lechon treat are part of the weekend food experience as well.

A bar with a vast choice of popular cocktails, drinks, beers and wine, an outlet of the Crêperie de Plaridel and the bubble-tea of Olibanana are part of the F&B offerings as well.
