San Remigio is a 3rd income class municipality in the province of Cebu, Philippines. According to the 2015 census, it has a population of 57,557. From the 2016 roll, it had 37,122 voters that are registered.

San Remigio celebrates its annual fiestas on 15 and 16 May in honor of the patron saints, San Isidro Labrador and San Juan Nepomuceno. The parish had had their 150th anniversary because it has been set up in the year 1864.

San Remigio was previously known as "Kanghagas," a sort of tree that grew there in abundance. When the Spanish conquistadores arrived, they identified a town site by clearing the trees that were kanghagas through self-help labor. Kanghagas was part of Barangay Punta.

Originally the visita of Kanghagas was within the jurisdiction of Bantayan. In 1850 Bogo established a parish, and the three barrios of Kanghagas, Lambusan, and Victoria (Maarat) became under the civil governance of Bogo. Kangahagas was renamed Isabel following Spain's queen. In 1864 these Barrios set a new parish named as San Juan Nepomuceno Parish (Redondo 1886, p. 165) and a new town was called San Remigio.
