Municipality of Padada – Davao Del Sur

Padada is a municipality situated in the southern part of Mindanao Island within the province of Davao del Sur, Philippines. Similar to Matanao, Padada is classified as a fourth-class municipality, denoting its moderate-income level and comparatively smaller population and economic development when compared to higher-classified municipalities.

Covering an approximate land area of 93.30 square kilometers, Padada consists of 21 barangays or villages, including Baga, Aplaya, Coronon, Kinangan, Kinarum, and Ompao, among others.

Agriculture plays a significant role in Padada’s economy, much like in Matanao. The municipality’s fertile soil supports the cultivation of various crops such as rice, corn, fruits, and vegetables. Additionally, coconut and banana plantations are common sights throughout the area.

It boasts abundant natural resources and scenic locations, including rolling hills, rivers, and waterfalls. Notably, Marawer Falls stands out as a popular tourist destination, featuring a picturesque waterfall enveloped by lush greenery and rock formations. Visitors can enjoy the refreshing and serene environment offered by the falls.

In terms of governance, Padada is led by a mayor, vice mayor, and members of the municipal council, all of whom are elected by the constituents. The local government unit bears the responsibility of delivering essential services and implementing programs aimed at promoting the overall welfare and progress of the municipality.

It is worth mentioning that Padada is categorized as a third-class municipality within the Province of Davao Del Sur. Its establishment was facilitated by Republic Act No. 1008, approved on June 12, 1954.
