Barangay Lawaan II is bounded by Barangay Lawaan III on the North, Barangay San Isidro on the East, Barangay Mohon on the South, and Barangay Lawaan I on the West. It has a land area of 72.251 hectares with fourteen (14) sitios. The barangay belongs to the middle-income class of the City of Talisay.
This barangay was founded in 1969 and its name was taken from the tall and beautiful endemic "Lauan" trees that were plentiful. It was said that when our forefathers came to Cebu, this place was full of vegetation and its lush forest extended up to the area of Manipis. The red and white Lawaan species were in abundance.
Part of Lawaan was a place called Bacayan, which was near the Mananga River. In fact, the Mananga Bridge in Tabunoc used to be called “Taytayan sa Bacayan”. It is also the home of various subdivision of the city.
