It is bounded on the north by the Municipality of Tapaz, Province of Capiz; on the northeast by the Municipality of Dumalag, also of Capiz; on the northwest by the Municipality of Passi; and the southeast by the Municipality of Calinog, its mother municipality.

Bingawan was created into a municipality on June 21, 1969, by Republic Act No. 5511. Before its transformation into a municipality, it was one of the barangays of Calinog.
