WELCOME TO MARIPIPI!

THIS WEBSITE HAS MOVED TO A NEW LOCATION. TO ACCESS THE SITE IN THE NEW LOCATION, POINT YOUR BROWSER TO http://maripipi.sqweebs.com/. THE SITE IN THIS LOCATION WILL CLOSE ON OCTOBER 26, 2009.

This is the un-official website of the island of Maripipi. The information that you will find on this site come from various sources including the internet. If you have information about Maripipi that you would like to share to the world, feel free to send them to me at maripipi.geo@yahoo.com so I can publish them on this site. Pictures are also welcome.

Maripipi is a 5th class municipality in the province of Biliran, Philippines. According to the 2000 census, it has a population of 8,319 people in 1,562 households.

Maripipi is politically subdivided into 15 barangays, namely:

  • Agutay
  • Banlas
  • Bato
  • Binalayan West
  • Binalayan East
  • Burabod
  • Calbani
  • Canduhao
  • Casibang
  • Danao
  • Ol-og
  • Binongto-an (Poblacion Norte)
  • Ermita (Poblacion Sur)
  • Trabugan
  • Viga

Viga is the barangay where my 4 sisters, 2 brothers and I were born and lived until we graduated from high school. My father was instrumental in the opening of the Viga Barangay High School (now Viga National High School) in 1969. He was the Assitant Pricipal of the school from the time it opened until his retirement. My sisters, brothers and myself are all alumni of VBHS.

We have great memories of our time in Maripipi. Perhaps one day you will be able to visit the place also dubbed as "the island of no return". When that happens, you can let me know.

Thank you for visiting Maripipiano. I hope you enjoyed your stay and that you will come visit the site again soon.
