Complete List of Cebu Towns and Cities

Cebu’s shape is elongated and can easily be navigated. For easier navigation, if you are a visitor in Cebu, Cebu is divided into two main parts, the northern part and the southern part. Transport wise, we can further subdivide the northern part into two parts, north-west and north-east, same with the southern part. See our Cebu Transport Guide. This post is a complete list of Cebu Towns and Cities of the entire Cebu Province.

Fun facts where Cebu Towns got it’s name

Most of the cities and towns of Cebu are named after land and water features and plants that used to be or are still prevalent or prominent in the locality.

Cities and towns named after flora/fauna include Bogo City (tree), Carcar City (fern), Naga (tree), Mandaue City (vine), Talisay City (tree), Catmon (tree), Argao (plant), Badian (plant), Barili (grass), Dalaguete (tree), Pinamungajan and Sibonga (fruit).

Named after water features are the city of Cebu (water/sea), and the towns of Liloan (whirlpool), Tuburan (springs), and Moalboal (Bubbling spring). The towns of Poro (island) and Boljoon (subsided land) got their names from landforms.

Some towns are named after native customs or festivals such as Balamban (river crossing), Bantayan and Daanbantayan (watching place), Tabogon (driven away), Sogod and Samboan (festival), Alegria (merriment), Balamban (river crossing), and Ginatilan (catered).
