  • Del Rosario

  • Osiao - this is one of the far flung barangays of Bacon district and the most practical transportation to reach it is by motorized banca. However, it hosts to one of the potential tourism spot – Danao Lake – situated on a mountain side. Due to its remoteness, it’s a well known hiding place of New People’s Army during the height of the communist rebellion on the ’80s.
  • Poblacion - this is the former town center of Bacon. It hosts to one of the oldest church in Sorsogon located in a hilltop. A lone hospital is located in this barangay.
  • Rawis
  • Salvacion
  • San Isidro this is situated between San Ramon and San Roque (both barangays of the Bacon district). Radial access to this barangay is via a city road from Sitio Batohan in Barangay San Roque. The road that cuts across this barangay proceeds via San Ramon and San Vicente, eventually merging with the Maharlika Highway in Barangay Buhatan (part of the Sorsogon district). San Isidro is relatively flat and it’s agriculture is mostly rice field. Part of the Bacon Airport’s runway (southern tip) is located in this barangay, while most of the portion is located in Barangay San Roque.
  • San Juan
  • San Pascual
  • San Ramon
  • San Roque
  • San Vicente
  • Santa Cruz
  • Santa Lucia
  • Santo Domingo
  • Santo Niño - the farthest barangay of Bacon District in the north, connecting to the municipality of Man-ito, Albay. It doesn’t sit beside any barangays since it’s bordered by unclassified forest land. The most practical transportation to reach it is by motorized banca due to lack of roads for light vehicles.
  • Sawanga
  • Sugod
