Mayor’s Message

Mayor Edsel G. Enardecido

Welcome to the official website of the Municipality of Ayungon.

Strategically located in the northern part of Negros Oriental, approximately two hours drive from the capital city of Dumaguete, this second class municipality is dubbed as the Rice Bowl of Central Negros.

Ayungon became a municipality in 1924 by Governor General Leonard Wood. Since then, Ayungon had been firing up its economic dynamos to catch up with the provincial developments while still retaining its charm and beauty through vast and scenic rice fields, dense coconut groves and expansive plantations of sugar cane, bananas, mangoes, and pineapple.

Ayungon is endowed with abundant natural resources from its forest to the corals in the shorelines. The Highlands of Ayungon takes pride nurturing one of the only three virgin forests said to be still remaining on Negros Island. Nature lovers will be regaled by sights in Nabingka Caves, vast areas of mangrove forest, the cool water of Maaslum Falls, and the Ayungon Peoples Park, while being warmth by the friendly Ayunganons.

To consolidate these resources, the Municipality endeavors to develop productive human resources and infrastructures to promote and strengthen agri-based ventures, support eco-tourism and sustainably manage an ecologically balanced environment.

This website is designed to give valuable information about the Municipality of Ayungon. We encourage you visit our site often to have updates on our upcoming events, news, and activities.

Dayon kamo and enjoy Ayungon!

Edsel G. Enardecido
Mayor, Municipality of Ayungon
