First, the name came from the word "bua", which in English mean beetlenut. Beetlenuts grew in abundance at the town site, now Barangay Nagrebcan where an old Spanish Church was built. Second, its name arose from the word "baoang" (garlic). The Spanish colonizers changed the letter "o" into "u";, thus its present name "Bauang". Third, it came from the word "buang", which means "river split in two" before flowing to the sea. As it is, the Bauang River is split into two by a delta. History Bauang was established as a settlement in 1590. It was recognized as a town in 1765 as a part of Pangasinan when Don Francisco de los Reyes became the first gobernadorcillo. When La Union was created in 1850, Bauang was one of the twelve towns that formed the new province. Manuel Arguilla, one of the Philippines' most influential English writers, grew up in Bauang's Barrio Nagrebcan and his stories, including the widely anthologized "How My Brother Leon Brought Home a Wife," are set in Nagrebcan.[1][2] Tourism and Leisure Bauang is famous for its, fine-sand beaches. It is the beach capital of the north. It attracts many foreigners because of the low cost of accommodation in the vicinity. Bauang Beach in Bgy.
