Santa Fe is a fourth income class municipality on Bantayan Island in the province of Cebu, Philippines.[2] According to the 2015 census, it has a population of 28,603.[3] In the 2016 election, it had 16,929 registered voters.[4]

The municipality's territory occupies the south-eastern 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.
