Negros Island province lies in the southwestern portion of the entire Negros Island. It is separated from its sister province, Negros Occidental, by rugged mountain ranges that run along the center of the island. The area along the province’s coastline are mostly made up of plains and valleys. Inland, volcanic peaks, hills, and plateaus are found. Located south of the province is a group of volcanic mountains, the highest of which is Cuernos de Negros with an elevation of 1,903 meters. In the north is Mount Canlaon, the province’s highest peak which is an active volcano, towering some 2,450 meters above sea level. Mount Canlaon draws the boundary between Negros Oriental and Negros Occidental.

When the Spaniards first arrived in Negros, the island was called Buclas, but was later renamed to Negros because of the numerous Negrito tribes inhabiting the area. In 1582, the municipality of Tanjay was the important settlement in Negros Oriental. It was only in 1620 when Dumaguete was created as an independent parish of Tanjay. The Spaniards considered the island of Negros as one province with Bacolod City as the capital. Negros Oriental was formally established as a separate province after the outbreak of the Philippine revolution and the surrender of the revolutionaries. The civil government of Negros Oriental was established on May 1, 1901 with Dumaguete City as the seat of government.

Negros Oriental is subdivided into 19 municipalities and 5 cities, which are further subdivided into 557 barangays.

Dumaguete City is the provincial capital and seat of government. It is also the most populous city, despite having the smallest land area.
