The town is named after "jidioc" or palm, which are abundant in the area. About 60 percent of the town's land area is occupied by the intimidating, sharp-toothed volcano Mt. Guiting-Guiting. The town offers a few outdoor and cultural adventures such as the 12 km Marigondon Biking Trail, Cawa-Cawa Falls and its cauldron-like basin, the forest-enclosed Agbalit Forest Resort, and the Handloom Weaving Center, which features Sibuyan Island's conventional looming tradition. Alibagon Beach is also a popular site in town, offering sailboat rides from its shore.
