Nineteenth-century chronicler Licinio Ruiz mentions Amblan, a settlement said to have been named after a superior kind of guava. The town was made a parish independent of Tanjay in 1848, was renamed New Ayuquitan in 1912, became Amlan after WW II. Amlan is a leisurely 15-minute cruise from Dumaguete City. Its Church of St Andrew the Apostle, completed in 1853 (and said to have taken 50 yeas to build) is the centerpiece of the town’s tourism picture while providing photo-opportunists with a colonial period backdrop. The ruins of watch-towers against the moro depredations of old can still be seen in Buswang and near the mouth of the Amlan River; and two others near the school building of Ayuquitan and barrio Calo. Amlan’s unique crowd-drawer is the Budyas Festival which begins on the Tandayag pier with a traditional ritual blessing of fishing implements and the elaborately-decorated fleet which then ferries the patron’s image in a fluvial procession to the chapel in Tandayag North. For nature attractions, there is the serene Tambojangin River for freshwater swims and the splashy three-tiered Naibid Falls in Jantianon. Amlan’s economy is anchored on fishing, copra and sugar cane, and its bustling Tandayag wharf, which is the seaport-of-call for Tañon Strait crossers from Cebu. The Province’s fuel and LPG supply is stored in depots nearby. Cottage industries produce mats, baskets, bamboo furniture, and buricraft.
