Danao is a third-class municipality in the Philippines' province of Cebu. Prior to the Spanish conquest of Cebu in 1565, the city was a part of the Cebuano Kingdom of Nahalin, ruled by Sri Ukob, one of the sons of Sri Lumay, the governor and founder of the Rajahnate of Cebu.

It became an encomienda of anonymous Spanish authorities in 1570 and remained so until the 18th century. Danao was founded as a parish by the Recollects in 1609 and as a municipality in 1773. A national charter was passed in 1961 to turn it into a capital.

Danao is bounded by Carmen to the north, Asturias to the west, Compostela to the south, and the Camotes Sea to the east. Tourism is steadily booming in Danao most likely to the family-owned resorts dotted along Cebu's eastern seaboard.
