Mapun, also known as Cagayan de Tawi-Tawi, Cagayan de Sulu, or Mapun Tawi-Tawi is a volcanic island municipality in the Sulu Sea on the southwestern extreme of the Philippines, located very close to Sabah.

The most popular tourist attraction in Mapun would be the three crater lakes on the west part of the island. Legend says that the three lakes were once volcanoes that erupted together. The first two, Danao and Singuwang, became freshwater crater lakes (now quite inaccessible and infested with crocodiles), and the third lake, Jurata, empties out to the Jurata Bay.

Politically subdivided into 15 barangays, the municipality has a population of 24,168 people, according to the 2010 census.
