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.

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.


Central Philippine Cuisine

Bicol is noted for its gastronomic appetite for the fiery or chili-hot dishes. Perhaps the most well-known Bicolano dish is the very spicy Bicol express. The region is also the well-known home of natong also known as laing or pinangat (a pork or fish stew in taro leaves).
