Buruanga is a fifth class municipality in the province of Aklan, Philippines. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 16,962 people. It is located at the most western tip of Panay Island. It is a coastal town bounded on the north by Malay; on the south by the municipality of Libertad, Antique; and at the west by Cuyo East Pass of the Sulu Sea. It is west from the capital Kalibo.HistoryThe name Buruanga came from the word “Busuanga” meaning eruption or swell. Frequently harassed by inundations from the river, the early residents constructed earthen dams which were subsequently washed away. The people named the river “Busuanga,” which later became the name of the Municipality. When the Spaniards arrived, they changed the name “Busuanga” to Buruanga, or perhaps the change was purely a clerical error. The present municipality of Malay, including Boracay, was once a part of the Municipality of Buruanga. Then, a very significant political event occurred on June 15, 1949 with the enactment of Republic Act 391, which separated Malay from Buruanga as an independent municipality.It was hit severely by typhoon Seniang on 9–10 December 2006, with much destruction and damage of homes and infrastructure.BarangaysBuruanga is politically subdivided into 15 barangays.Take stress off the schedule by using our Philippines trip builder.
