Uyugan is a sixth class municipality in the Batanes province, Philippines. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 1,240 people.〔
Uyugan lies in the southeastern part of Batan Island in the province of Batanes. It covers an approximate land area of 1,500 hectares or 15 square kilometers. Over a thousand people live in the municipality, which is bounded by Mahatao on the north, the Balintang Channel on the south, the Philippine Sea on the east and Ivana on the west.
The Uyugan town proper (''Centro'' or ''Idi'' to the Isantoninos) is from Basco, the provincial capital. It's located along the banks of what was once a brook, a kilometer east of the Ivana-Uyugan border.
There are two other major settlements in the municipality that are situated along the Pacific seaboard, namely: Itbud and Imnajbu. Itbud is four kilometres from the town proper or Centro while Imnajbu is two kilometres farther northeast.
The land is varied. It changes from rocky hills along the coasts to grassy and forest hills in the interior. Most of the land has been cleared for farming.
In the language of the Ivatans, "''Uyugan''" means place of flowing water—which is never far away except in the town proper itself: Today's brook bed that cuts the town proper in half dried up during the severe earth movements of 1918.
