Corregidor Island Travel Guide: 239 reviews and 904 photos

A tadpole-shaped island fortress, Corregidor is also known as "The Rock". It was the last Filipino-American bastion to fall to the Japanese during World War II.

My father often tells me stories of his youth...during the war but still it is only when I visited this place that I truly appreciate the men and women of WWII.

Going here...I have seen one of the most beautiful sunrise ever. I am more of a "sunset" person but this one really took my breath away. Amazing!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Historical....heroism at its best.
  • Cons:Many people lost their lives over here...fighting for freedom.
  • In a nutshell:...ang mamatay ng dahil sa'yo. (excerp from Lupang Hinirang)

    After reading all your tips i have made up my mind to visit this place for the first time, after living in the Philippines for 20 yrs. We have promo tkts for March and August to Manila, but not 100% sure we can fit it in, as we are already committed to some engagements , but for sure i will allow an extra day for this on a later booking.
