Originally, the municipality was called Quinali due to the characteristic land formation of sand, gravel and corals that filed layer after layer amassed by seawaves since time immemorial. Once a barrio of Guindulman, it was made into a municipality on March 12, 1875 and was renamed "Anda" which means walking and moving (to posterity).
It is located on a small peninsula at the eastern tip of Bohol, 99 kilometers from Tagbilaran City.
