The total land area of the barangay is 9.596 km2, largest in the city. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 51,033.
Tunasan is located 27 kilometers south of the City of Manila. It is bounded by Poblacion, Muntinlupa on the north, the Laguna de Bay on the east, the San Pedro barangays of San Antonio and Cuyab on the south; and the Bacoor barangay of Molino IV, province of Cavite, on the west.
Tunasan got its name from a medicinal plant locally called tunas (Nymphaea nouchali) which was abundant on the Tunasan river and the shoreline of Laguna de Bay. It was called "Tunasancillo" during the Spanish colonial period, and it was a barrio and also a part of the vast hacienda owned by the Augustinian Recollects in the pueblo or town of San Pedro Tunasan in the province of La Laguna. Eventually, it became part of the Municipio of Muntinlupa which was a part of the province of Manila when the town of San Pedro Tunasan sold it in 1907 during the American period. After the separation, the town of San Pedro Tunasan simply changed its name to San Pedro and the sold barangay of Tunasancillo was called Tunasan.
