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 people.[3] The municipality's territory comprises the southeastern portion of Bantayan Island (bordering on the municipality of Bantayan), and the islands of Guintacan (or Kinatarcan) and Hilantagaan. It is the gateway to the Bantayan group of Islands.

Bantayan Island 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.

Santa Fe is one of the most crowded municipalities during Holy Week: it caters to a large number of tourist, both foreign and locals who spend their holiday on this lush and beautiful island.[citation needed]
