Daan-Bantayan is the northern most town of Cebu. (Not to confuse with Bantayan Island). It is around 4 hours land trip from Cebu City. Daan-Bantayan is bordered on the north by the Visayan Sea, to the west by Bantayan Island, on the east by the Camotes Sea, and on the south by the town of Medellin. Daan Bantayan is part of the main island, Cebu’s northern most province. (If it’s in the southern-most province of Cebu, it is Santander).
The Origin of the name of “Daan-Bantayan”
The name Daan-Bantayan is derived from two bisaya words, “daan”, which means “old” and “bantayan”, which means “watch-tower” or “guard house”, combined together refers to a place that served as a look out for Moro raiders during the Pre-Hispanic Philippines. This “bantayan” site was located in a vintage point of Punta situated in the district of Tapilon.
