Topography:
The terrain of Toledo City is characterized by the Narrow Coastal Plains that give way abruptly to a few rolling hills and rugged mountain ranges and stones. Roughly 20 sq. km. (2000 hectares) along the coast line have elevations of less than 40 meters above sea level. There are fairly level and rolling plateaus and valley comprising some 57 sq.kms. (5,700 has.) spread throughout the interior.

Climate :
Cebu Island is located within the Philippines "typhoon belt" winds of only 11k and 6k with normal track from northeast trade in January and March, respectively, hit the general vicinity of Toledo at an average of once a year or less. Shielded by Cebu's mountain ranges in this direction, Toledo is not affected by these winds. This fact, however, does not spare Toledo's mountain barrios from the wind and a part of its lowland areas particularly in the vicinity of Dumlog and Sangi, from the disastrous effct of flood water caused by the typhoon.

Soil Type :
Beach sand, bolinao clay, faraon clay, baguio clay loam and Mandaue silt loam.
