The Iyusan Rice Terraces are a manmade agricultural landform and tourist attraction found in Biliran Province in the Eastern Visayas region in the Philippines. They are located in Sitio Barubohan, Barangay Iyusan, in the municipality of Almeria, Biliran, and take their name from the barangay in which they are found. The terraces overlook the town and lie about 15 minutes away by land transport from the town proper. A smaller version of the more famous Banaue Rice Terraces of the Ifugaos, the terraces were created in order to utilize land more efficiently for rice production but over the years they have also come to be considered a scenic attraction.
