Geography: Aklan Province Islands Philippines

Aklan encompasses the northwestern portion of Panay Island and the entirety of nearby Boracay Island both situated within the Visayas Island, group. Cadastrally located from north to south between 12° 00´N and 11° 19´S and from west to east between 121° 50´W and 122° 35 35´E. Aklan is bordered by the Sulu Sea on the northwest, the Sibuyan Sea on the northeast and the east, by the province of Antique on the west, and by the province of Capiz on the south. The northernmost limit of Aklan is Lapuz point on Boracay Island (Malay), while the southernmost limit is the point in the municipality of Libacao where the borders of Aklan, Antique Capiz meet. The easternmost part of Aklan is the eastern shoreline of Mambuquiao Bay in the municipality of Batan, the westernmost location is Pucio Point (Buruanga)

Aklan has an estimated land area of 181,789 hectares. This is the official estimate of the National Census and Statistic Office and the Bureau of Forest Development. However, the figure remains only an estimate because the provincial and municipal boundaries are in dispute, and because the province has not been entirely cadastrally surveyed.

Aklan is composed of 17 municipalities, namely, (geographically listed from West to East) Buruanga, Malay, Nabas, Ibajay, Tangalan, Makato, Numancia, Lezo, Malinao, Madalag, Kalibo, Banga, Balete, Libacao, New Washington, Altavas and Batan. The largest in land area being Libacao and the smallest, Lezo. Each municipality maintains a municipal government whose seat is the barrio designated Poblacion, and which carries the same name as the entire municipality. Within the province are 327 barrios, the largest number being located in Ibajay, the smallest number being located in Balete.
