Accommodation in Biri
Seacret Homestay Apartments are two newly constructed beautifully appointed privately owned self contained apartments situated on the very remote Island of Biri.

The apartments would suit the nomad traveller, romantic getaways, fishing, snorkelling, Beach BBQs or just chill out and relax and watch the world go by.
Biri Island is one of the most beautiful Islands of the Philippines and is situated off the coast of Northern Samar. Samar is on the eastern edge of the Phillippine Islands Group and is open to the Pacific Ocean, hence the amazingly clear blue seas. It is situated in Northern Samar where the Pacific Ocean meets the land. The beauty of the place is almost untouched. Its beaches are pristine, rock formations enormous, and sights absolutely beautiful.
The village/town is peaceful, very laid-back and brims with a calm, friendly atmosphere that the locals here effortlessly and charmingly create. Biri has a small population is largly a fishing community, religion being predominantly catholic. It is safe to wander through the village and refreshingly you will not be harassed by vendors.
