Aklan has an estimated land area of 181,789 hectares. This is the official estimate of the National Census and Statistic Office and the Bureau of Forest Development.

Aklan is composed of 17 municipalities, namely, (geographically listed from West to East) Buruanga, Malay, Nabas, Ibajay, Tangalan, Makato, Numancia, Lezo, Malinao, Madalag, Kalibo, Banga, Balete, Libacao, New Washington, Altavas and Batan. The largest in land area being Libacao and the smallest, Lezo. Each municipality maintains a municipal government whose seat is the barrio designated Poblacion, and which carries the same name as the entire municipality.
