Santa Fe is a fourth class[4] municipality in the province of Cebu, Philippines. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 27,270.[3] The municipality's territory occupies the southeastern portion of Bantayan Island (marching with the municipality of Bantayan), together with the islands of Guintacan (or Kinatarkan), Hilantagaan and Hilantagaan Diot. Because the island's airport and principal ferry port are both located within the municipality, Santa Fe is considered the gateway to Bantayan and its islands.

Transport[edit]

Bantayan Airport, serving the whole Bantayan Island, is located in Santa Fe, although there are no scheduled flights. The town can also be reached by ferry from Hagnaya Wharf in San Remigio, Cebu.

Economy[edit]

Although there is some small-scale industry, the municipality's principal source of income is fishing and agriculture, and from holidaymakers who come in large numbers, most notably during Holy Week, to enjoy the particularly fine white sand and uncrowded beaches.
