  • This is a town in the northern coast of the province. At one time, it was a barrio of Inabanga and later of Getafe. In the early days, it was known as "Pangpang" because of a limestone cliff found in the barrio. When the Spaniards came to the shores of the place, with its verdant hills and slopes, they were very much impressed by the scenic spots with its natural beauty. They could not help but appreciate the beautiful view before them. Hence, they named the place "buenavista", meaning "good view". In 1874, Buenavista was separated from the town of Inabanga and annexed to the town of Getafe. It was made an independent municipality in 1960.(the provincial government file)
    Romans 10:9
    "That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved."
