Corregidor is a small rocky island in the Philippines about 48 kilometres west of Manila, strategically located at the entrance of Manila Bay. This island fortress is a memorial for the courage and heroism of its Filipino and American defenders who bravely held their ground against the overwhelming number of invading Japanese forces during World War II. Along with the nearby Caballo island, Corregidor actually forms a part of an inactive volcanic crater. The Pacific memorial with its dome ceiling and marble altar makes for a befitting memorial to the valorous Filippino army.The island also features numerous forest trails, exotic birds and scenic boat rides. Visitors can participate in many activities like biking, rock balancing, hiking and bird watching.

Corregidor Island Reviews & Ratings

  • An unforgettable remnant of history. Filipinos and veterans should visit this monumental place at least once in a lifetime.

  • A historic place in Cavite! I never knew the whole story of death march til i went there. The trip was awesome. The terminal is in MOA. Trip is at 7am by ship then maybe came home 4pm. It was awesome cos our guide is so entertaining and really knows her work. We paid 2k plus per person yet really worth it.The views,the story and the food plus the people and souvenirs.... two thumbs up! We were not able to stay in their hotel for the night.. All in all the the experience was GREAT!💟😍💞

  • I learned more about WWII American history in one day here than I did my entire education. It is amazing, terrify and nostalgic at all the same time. If you have a chance to visit do it.

  • I love slices of history and Corregidor provides a very thick slice of WW2 history and the Japanese occupation of the Philippines. You can come here from one esplanade or go direct to mariveles and catch a banca. Here you'll see a lot of old batteries that are still intact as well as old buildings that were shelled and bombed. The scary part of the tour is Malinta tunnel were thousands died. Just going in the tunnel gave me the creeps. Mind you, power isn't stable here and there's barely any food and a lot of the facilities don't really work. There's one hotel here where you can stay overnight.

  • Coregidor Island, Cavite, Philippines. Filipino's last stand during world War II. Ride a ferry from one esplanade. Upon reaching the island, a team will pick you up and tour you inside the island. You'll see old building destroyed by war, non functional cannons..very historical place. A must to visit. Tour guide will tell the story of each station.
