Talisay is a fourth class municipality in the Province of Camarines Norte, Philippines. It has a total land area of 3,076 hectares (7,600 acres), making it the smallest municipality in the province. The town, which was named after the big trees that abound in its poblacion, is home to 23,904 people; of which, mostly are farmers.
The fertile soil, gentle topography (averaging about 10 metres (33 ft) above sea-level) and suitable climate are the main reasons why agriculture is the economic backbone of the town. Rice and coconut farming are the major agricultural activities for most of the barangays and fishing is the second thriving industry particularly in the coastal barangays.
Talisayons have a deep concern for education. A family no matter how poor sends their children to school. Talisay has a very long list of successful professionals in various fields such as medicine, law, engineering, architecture, education, law enforcement and military service, banking, business, sports, entertainment, and many more. The incumbent mayor is the Honorable Mayor Ronnie Magana.
