Pacijan: the sole municipality is San Francisco.
Ponson: the sole municipality is Pilar.
Tulang: is part of the barangay Esperanza, which is part of San Francisco.


There are beautiful beaches, springs, natural pools and a legendary waterfall said to be where Panganuron, the islands’ mythical Solomon held court and mediated warring tribes. There is a limestone promontory called The Quarry, a local lover’s lane overlooking the seven-hundred-hectare Lake Danao. The waters around the islands run the spectrum from blue to bottle green and finally deep blue.
