MUNICIPALITY OF TUBIGON

A coastal town having a coastline 14 kilometers long, this town is located at the northern part of the province. It has a good port of entry where ferry boats are plying daily from Cebu and back carrying passengers and cargoes.

The early settlers called the place “Tubigan” meaning having water or watery because the community was always submerged in water when rivers overflows its banks during rainy seasons. Later, this was changed to “Tubigon” meaning a place abounding in water, because under the fertile soil there is plenty of water aside from the many springs and streams of the town. At present these sources of water are converted into a giant irrigation dam to regulate the flow of supply of water to the ricefields.
