Corregidor Island, The Philippines

Corregidor is the jurisdiction of the City of Cavite, Cavite Province. It is also known as “The Rock” for its rocky landscape and the heavy fortifications. The tadpole-shaped island, with its tail running eastward, is about 6.5 km (4.0 miles) long, about 2.0 km (1.2 miles) wide at its widest with a total land area of about 900 hectares (2,200 acres). More details can be found at http://www.corregidor.org/_admin/CTN_central/ctn_ghq_index_composite.htm and http://corregidorisland.com/index.html.

A visit to the island can be booked and arranged through Sun Cruises (http://www.corregidorphilippines.com/).
