The Visayas region
Siaton is often referred to as the "rice bowl" of the province. The town has one of the largest land areas in the south. It is a one-hour drive from Dumaguete City.
Siaton is the southernmost municipality in the province of Negros Oriental. It has 26 barangays, 14 of which are near the coast. The Siaton shoreline stretches to 51 kilometers while the total land area is 335.40 km2.
It is a 1st class municipality in the third district of the province. According to the 2007 census, it has a population of 67,943 people. The major tourist attraction of Siaton is Lake Balanan, a 15 km hike from Siaton's national highway. It is ideal for camping, swimming and outdoor recreations. It also boasts of the Antulang Beach which has white pebble beaches, interesting rock formations, clear waters and underwater scenery ideal for snorkeling. There is also a good site for windsurfing, scuba diving, and sailing such as the Tambobo Beach.
Siaton provides Negros Oriental visitors a refreshing encounter with nature, from beaches to a beautiful mountain lake that was created by landslide caused by an earthquake in the 1920s.
Siaton has the best of all worlds, the coastal areas feature beaches and diving, the inland areas are agricultural, while the mountanous areas are being reforested with fruit trees to provide an additional source of income to the residents.
Tourism in Siaton is rapidly developing and becoming generally significant like Tambobo Bay in barangay Bonbonon and Balanan Lake indicates great potentials in Tourism. Among the chief products of the municipality are rice, coconuts, corn, cassava, sweet potatoes, black berries (duhat), siri-guelas and mangoes.
Add to all these nature's gift of Lake Balanan, which is a community managed and protected resource, that has been offering tourists yet another reason to visit Siaton, which is just an hour away from Dumaguete City, the capital of Negros Oriental in the Philippines.
In the southern tip of Negros Oriental lies a bay that one traveler's guidebook simply describes as "a place with many sailboats”.
Indeed, Tambobo Bay in the municipality of Siaton is such a place, but it is definitely more than that. It counts not only a community of Filipino fishers among its residents, but an increasing number of foreign travelers who have chosen to live in their boats while moored in the bay's still waters.
