Legend states that the early Malay explorers first settled at the Calumpan Peninsula. As more Malay settlers arrived from distant lands, they began to form their own government. Rapid increase of settlers resulted to establishment of more regions which soon after became the province of Kumintang, presently known as Batangas.
For more than three hundred years, this Calumpan Peninsula remained a part of the pueblo or municipality of Bauan in the province of Kumintang. Soon after, efforts were made to establish a new municipality, independent of the town of Bauan, comprising the eleven (11) barrios of the Calumpan Peninsula. On January 1, 1918, the Municipality of MABINI was born, in honor of the Sublime Paralytic, GAT APOLINARIO MABINI.
Presently, this scenic town is comprised of 34 barangays and home to more than 40,000 residents with more than15% of the population working overseas. Mabini is also popularly known as the "Dive Resort Capital" of the Province of Batangas because of its vast and rich diving sites.
The Municipality of Mabini is geographically located on coordinates 130 45” N’NE latitude and 1210 56” E’SE longitude on the southwestern side of the province of Batangas. It is bounded on the north by the Municipality of Bauan; on the east by Batangas Bay; on the west by Balayan Bay and the Municipality of Tingloy and on the south by Maricaban Strait and porions of the Verde Island Passage.
