Corregidor Island Day Tour.
Corregidor is known the world over for its role in war, bravery, and history. It is three miles long and 1 ½ miles at its widest point, facing the China Sea and flanked by the provinces of Bataan and Cavite. A rock island remarkably shaped like a tadpole at the entrance of Manila Bay, Corregidor's strategic location was vital in the defense of Manila during World War II.

Correjidor Tour

The name 'Corregidor' came from the Spanish 'corregir', or 'to correct', since the island was a checkpoint for vessels entering Manila Bay during the Spanish and American occupations. Perhaps it is Corregidor's geographical proximity to Bataan and existing inaccurate historical writings that cause many to associate the rock island with the Death March, which came shortly after the Fall of Bataan.

Today, Corregidor's rich history continues to draw Filipino and foreign tourists alike, making the island one of the most visited tourist spots in the country. For first-time Filipino visitors, Corregidor reacquaints them with the past and helps them discover their national identity. The island is the home of many historical treasures such as:

Malinta Tunnel - Completed in 1922, Malinta Tunnel was formerly an arsenal and underground hospital. Located under the Malinta hill, it served as bomb-proof headquarters for Fil-American troops during World War II.

Lighthouse - Originally built by the Spaniards on 1836 and one of Corregidor's oldest landmarks, the Lighthouse offers a great view of Manila Bay, the South China Sea, and the rest of the island. It is located at Topside and is 628 feet above sea level.

Topside and Middleside - Like a virtual museum, Topside and Middleside include remains of soldiers' and officers' barracks like the Mile-Long Barracks, and many artillery batteries such as Battery Hearn.

President Manuel L. Quezon Park - A statue of President Quezon stands at the north entrance of the Malinta Tunnel's 1,000-bed hospital where he was inaugurated as the President of the Commonwealth for a second term at the height of the Japanese attack in Corregidor.

General Douglas MacArthur Park - A statue of the General stands at the Lorcha Dock ruins at Bottomside where he boarded a boat to Mindanao on March 11, 1942. He then sailed to Australia where he sent his famous message: "I shall return."

Japanese Garden of Peace Park - Located at Tailside, the park features a 10-foot stone Buddha, a Shinto Shrine, and various Japanese soldier memorial shrines and anti-aircraft weapon relics. This is also a place of prayer for Japanese war veterans and their relatives.

While reacquainting its visitors with history, Corregidor shall soon provide more scenic adventures and modern amenities. Remains of barracks and artillery batteries will soon co-exist with shops, restaurants, resorts, and cottages. The Corregidor of the future will be an island of old and new memories, a meeting of history and modernity.
