The Zamboanga Peninsula Region, also known as Region IX, is located in the north-western part of Mindanao Island in the Philippines. This region is composed of three provinces: Zamboanga del Norte, Zamboanga del Sur, and Zamboanga Sibugay, as well as the chartered city of Zamboanga. Its Regional Center is located in Pagadian City, Zamboanga Del Sur

The region is known for its rich cultural heritage, beautiful natural landscapes, and diverse marine life.

Zamboanga Peninsula is a melting pot of ethnic groups, including the indigenous Subanen, the Muslim communities of the Tausug and Samal-Badjao, as well as migrants from other parts of the country. This cultural diversity is reflected in the region’s colorful festivals, traditional crafts, and unique culinary traditions.

The region’s economy is driven by agriculture, fishing, and trade. It is a major producer of rice, corn, coconut, and other tropical fruits. The coastal areas support a thriving fishing industry, contributing to the region’s overall economic vitality.

Tourism also plays a significant role in the region’s economy, with attractions such as pristine beaches, historical landmarks, and ecotourism destinations. Visitors can explore the crystal-clear waters of Dakak Beach in Zamboanga del Norte, discover the historical significance of Fort Pilar in Zamboanga City, or immerse themselves in the natural beauty of the Merloquet Falls.

Overall, the Zamboanga Peninsula Region offers a fascinating blend of culture, history, and natural wonders, making it a compelling destination for both local and international travelers.

Zamboanga Peninsula Region is composed of 3 provinces on the northwestern portion of Mindanao. It’s bordered by the Sulu Sea to the west, the Gulf of Moro to the south, Region X: Northern Mindanao to the east, and the Sulu Archipelago to the south-west.
