According to the 2015 census, it has a population of 19,373 people.[3] Malabuyoc is situated in the southwestern coast of the island of Cebu and is about 125 kilometres (80 mi) from Cebu City.

History[edit]

The popular story tells that that once Malabuyoc grew plenty of fruit trees like mangoes, lanzones, cacaos and others. Some much that the branches of trees bent heavily down (buyoc in Visaya). On account of this, the place came to be called Buyoc.

MALABUYOC is the mother town for ALEGRIA, CEBU and a contributor town to GINATILAN, CEBU (a daughter town of SAMBOAN, CEBU). Some barangays of both ALEGRIA and GINATILAN were originated from MALABUYOC, CEBU. Areas covered by both municipalities; ALEGRIA & GINATILAN were almost half or more than a half of their current jurisdictions respectively were originally belongs to the jurisdiction of MALABUYOC, CEBU. If ever the town of GINATILAN, CEBU was not created, MALABUYOC, CEBU would be the CLAIMANT for the 2nd FILIPINO SAINT: PEDRO CALUNGSOD.

It was officially established as a separate municipality from its parent town of Samboan in 1832. Its Parish Church was finished in 1834.
