After you cross the Ayala bridge, instead of going straight and staying on the main highway, turn left and you will be on the old Talisayan road. Although some of the beach front properties have been fenced in by corporations, you can still go swimming in the beautiful Talisayan beach.

History of Talisayan, Zamboanga City
During those early days, Talisayan was a quiet place and there were just few people living in the area. When the Spaniards came, a large number of people moved to the place.
As the years went by, there were also people who decided to stay in this place to earn their living. They found this place suitable for fishing and farming.
People from other places finally decided to stay here permanently. In the late afternoons, children spent their time along the seashore playing and breathing the freshness of the air. The children also gathered talisay fruits that served as their snacks after playing.
One afternoon, a group of Spaniards passed by the seashore. They saw the children playing and they approached them and asked in Spanish what the name of the place is.
The children thought they were asked what they were eating, so they replied "Talisay". Consequently the Spaniards thought that the name of the place is Talisayan after the talisay trees that grew abundantly in the area. This is the reason why this place is now called Talisayan.
Moreover, Talisayan also has one sitio called San Ramon. Like Talisayan, it also has its own story.

- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.
