Tulang is a part of Barangay Esperanza in the municipality of San Francisco. The Tulang islet is known in the locality as Tulang Diot and that the other is Tulang Dako, which is part of the mainland San Francisco, Cebu.
Just before Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines on November 8, 2013, the mayor of San Francisco ordered the evacuation of approximately 1,000 residents on the island to the main island of San Francisco. This was credited with saving their lives as the 500 houses on the island were completely destroyed.
