Barangay Talisay is a small barangay located at the northeastern coast of the town. It is four kilometers from Poblacion and majority of the residents are engaged in fishing while mat weaving follows.
Long time ago, there stood a giant tree near the shore. This tree was used as a rendezvous to all fishermen before going home. This tree was called “TALISAY” and until now, it can be seen a lot of these trees in the area. This tree bears heart-shape fruits which children enjoy eating the luscious fruit contents. That huge tree can no longer be seen, however several species of the same kind sprouted in this barangay that reminds us on how Barangay Talisay got its name.
