Buenavista is a town on the northern coast of the province. At one time, it was a barrio of Inabanga and later of Getafe. Formerly, it was known as Pangpang because of a limestone cliff found in the barrio. When the Spaniards came to the shores of the place, with its green hills and slopes, they were very much impressed by the scenic spots and its natural beauty. They could not help but appreciate the beautiful view before them. Hence, they named the place Buenavista, meaning "good view". In 1874, Buenavista was separated from Inabanga and annexed to Getafe. It was made an independent municipality in 1960.
Buenavista celebrate its town fiesta on the 7th of October in honor of Santo Rosario.

|I just want to know, why the 2 Lapacan barangays are appearing in both Buenavista and Inbanga? I am just curious because I was born in Bugtong Lubi,Lapacan Sur. Could anybody give a clear answer on this?|
