is a town south of Dumaguete City.

Land Area: 85.86 km ²
Population: 24,996 (2010)
Barangays: 10

A Brief History___________________________

Founded in 1966, the town is said to have been named after the "coguita" or octopus, an abundance of which were used to hung out in the sun to dry. Others say it is named to be the little Zamboanga, located just across the sea.

The People______________________________

Majority of the population speak the Cebuano dialect.

Commerce and Industry_____________________

Local economy is based on corn, copra, fishing, and livestock.

Getting There and Away_____________________

Jeepneys ply the Dumaguete-Zamboanguita route and vice versa many times daily.

Other Information__________________________

Every Wednesday a bustle of city folks, expats and guests of the province drive into a Zamboanguita seaside to take in authentic rural scenes, feast on authentic native cuisine, and experience an authentic - if nontypical touristic - phenomenon called Malatapay. Livestock auctions, flea markets and al fresco seafood lunches compete for attention.

Conservationist Father Eleuterio Tropa established in his hometown the province's only zoo, a showcase of marine life, and a viewing area for contemplating Mt. Talinis. Farther inland is a recently discovered natural bridge. Closer to the poblacion, a monument on the banks of the Guinsoan River marks the spot where the Japanese Imperial Forces surrendered to the 503rd US Airborne Division on September 19, 1945.
