Sibulan is a second class municipality in the province of Negros Oriental, Philippines. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 51,519 people.[3]

Sibulan is bordered to the south by Dumaguete City, the provincial capital. It is the location of the Dumaguete Airport, the main airport for Negros Oriental.

Sibulan is also the location of the Twin Lakes eco-tourism site, composed of Lake Balinsasayao and Lake Danao. The site, managed by the provincial government, is located 1,047 metres (3,435 ft) above sea level on Mount Talinis.


Sibulan is politically subdivided into 15 barangays.[2]

  • Agan-an
  • Ajong
  • Balugo
  • Boloc-boloc
  • Calabnugan
  • Cangmating
  • Enrique Villanueva
  • Looc
  • Magatas
  • Maningcao
  • Maslog
  • Poblacion
  • San Antonio
  • Tubigon
  • Tubtubon

Sibulan has six coastal barangays: from north to south they are Ajong, Looc, Poblacion, Cangmating, Maslog, Agan-an and Boloc-boloc. The provincial airport, known as the Dumaguete Airport, is actually in Agan-an, Sibulan. There is a growing number of guest houses and beach resorts from Cangmating southward to Dumaguete and the coral reefs of Ajong are attracting more dive boats.

The municipal seat is in barangay Poblacion, approximately midway along the coast of the town. The main municipal port facility is in Poblacion, where a fast ferry runs every hour to Santander on the tip of Cebu island. There is also a fishing and freight port in barangay Looc.

Sibulan has two small Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), which are coral reef areas that prohibit fishing, swimming and diving. One is in Agan-an, just north of the airport, the other is in Cangmating. These were established to improve the sustainability of the local fishery.

The inland barangays are primarily agricultural and residential with minimal business and public facilities. Most commercial development is along the national highway, which runs the length of the town from Dumaguete in the south to San Jose at the north. Most business and light industry is along the highway in Boloc-Boloc, Maslog, Agan-an and Poblacion. This is largely urban sprawl from Dumaguete seeking the advantageous tax rates in Sibulan.

Sibulan also boasts a golf course resort, perched on the foothills in barangay San Antonio, just north of the town center.
