Getting There Corregidor Island, one of the most important and celebrated places of battle in the Pacific Theatre during World War 2- now that guns are finally silent, the island serves as a distinct destination for people of all ages and walks of life in order to understand, learn and appreciate the courage and bravery of Filipinos amidst the indescribable horrors of war.
Corregidor Island is a small rocky tadpole-shaped island of volcanic origin guarding the mouth of Manila Bay- remnants of Corregidor Caldera, a volcano last active 1 million years ago was the site of the fiercest battles of World War 2 between the Allied forces Filipinos, Americans and the Japanese Imperial Army.
