Bindoy (formerly Payabon) is a third class municipality in the province of Negros Oriental, Philippines. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 39,416 people.[3]


Oriental Negros’ lone municipality named after a native of distinction, Bindoy started out as barrio Payabon of Manjuyod. In 1949, President Elpidio Quirino separated it as the Municipality of Bindoy. Hermenegildo “Bindoy” Villanueva was, at various times, governor of Oriental Negros, congressman of the First District, Labor Secretary of the Quezon cabinet, and senator of the Republic.

Less than two hours’ drive from Dumaguete City, Bindoy is known as the hub of the First Negros Oriental Electric Cooperative, which energizes the northern towns. It’s principal produce are copra, rice and corn, sugar cane, mangoes; and quantities of bamboo, pandan and romblon, tikog, buri, maguey and abaca to support cottage industries.

Bindoy’s Bulod flatstones are weighty export items, their quarrying makes for an interesting sight. Bindoy’s mangroves salute nature conservationists, as do dainty Mantahaw Falls and limpid Mantahaw Lake.

The annual Libod-Sayaw sa Bindoy, with streetdancing based on folk dances, is a colorful highlight of the town fiesta.[4]
