We went there looking for a afternoon of snorkeling, it cost 500 a person to get in this beautiful area and you can spend that money on drink and food, the area is picturesque but the snorkeling was no where near as good as puka beach, it is quite romantic if you are looking for that

Baling-Hai is a perfect beach to relax in a private bay where no sellers and public people are disturbing you, stay at Alargo-Villa which is just 5 min. away from this beach, it has a perfect price performance relation and you can book the whole villa or only an apartement, book the 2nd floor apartment with jacuzzi

I was so disappointed when I reach this resort, as so many good review, but the place didn't maintain, not clean, tower has strong detergent smell, and is not completely dry. One of our friend even move to other resort immediately as BalingHai has no return policy. All of us can't sleep in first time, that is no air-con in... More

Crystal water, algae-free! Floating platforms to lie face-down on! Cloud-soft sand! A hammock for lazing in! A damn good restaurant at which to throw your 500peso consumables fee [totally worth it]! Lovely staff! The sunsets! The sunsets!! I now understand what a living beach looks like. We saw hermit crabs all over the place, including one that was properly lobster-sized.... More

It is a little hidden beach near our apartment. Very quiet with beautiful soft sea and view...really romantic to watch sunset from the raft and enjoy it like your own private beach. 500 pesos to enter but it is consumable for food and drink.

Beach is not crowded & no activities to do. But area around balinghai is very good for scuba diving as one can see Sea Turtle.

This beach is tiny and difficult to access. But, if you can find room there, it's unique. Food is lowed by a rope pulley. There was a slight entrance fee.
