Things to do: adventure
Dauin is a fourth class municipality in the province of Negros Oriental, Philippines. It is bordered on the north by Bacong, on the south by Zamboanguita, and on the west a mountain range separates it from Santa Catalina. The municipality is a coastal town, the Bohol Sea forming its eastern border. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 25,239 people.HistoryOrigin of Name: There are three versions, the first two being interrelated; first, there was a majestic tree that towered over all trees that the Spaniards asked for its name, which was Calawin. Second, the natives believed that the Calawin was the home of the supernatural beings, called “Dawinde”, who gave help to those in need but could be seen only in such situations. The third, natives used to cultivate the lands into banana plantations. The bananas were sold not by bunch or by fingers but by hands, which were locally called “Lawing”.An association of Japanese divers once named Apo Island of Dauin town one of the ten best dive sites in the world. The 72-hectare volcanic outcrop on Oriental Negros’ eastern horizon has placed Dauin in the world tourism map. It is an international favorite, attracting large numbers of scuba and snorkel enthusiasts to its magnificent underwater gardens and colorful marine life.While the island barangay is Dauin’s principal tourism lure, the town’s beaches are the locus of some of the most popular resorts in the province, from the upscale to the budget-friendly, all catering to the foreign market, all gazing at Apo Island. Occasional sorties to Dauin’s marine reserves can also be arranged.
