The name Daanbantayan was derived from two words: the word “daan”, which means “old” in Cebuano, and the word “bantayan”, which refers to a place that served as a look out for Moro raiders during the Pre-Hispanic Philippines. The original site of the town might have been at an elevated vantage point near Punta, in Tapilon. 

On 8 November 2013, 9 people were killed and 50 injured when Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda in Philippines area of responsibility) passed over Daan Bantayan.
