MUNICIPALITY OF ALICIA
The breath-taking seascape and landscape of Alicia characterized by sparkling waters, sand atolls, and pristine white beaches that line this coastal town bespeaks the generosity of Mother Nature. Alicia’s marine resources are abundant with world class “Sari” fishes such as lapu-lapu, milkfish, salmon, lobster, tangigue, mantis and crabs that contribute mainly in the municipal’s economy. Agar-agar production, lobster culture, bangus fry culture, siganid culture and mud crab pen culture are lucrative enterprises that also generate economic activity. Meanwhile, the fertile grounds of the town produces high value crops, vegetables, cut flowers/ornamental plants, and commercial crops like coconut, rice, corn, abaca, etc.
It celebrates its Araw ng Alicia evry the 21st of August. Alicia was formerly a part of Margosatubig Zamboanga Del Sur, until its creation on August 22, 1951, under Executive Order No. 268 which was issued by then President Elpidio Quirino, and named after his wife Mrs. Alicia Syquia Quirino.
