My Own Halloween Special – Corregidor Island

Me with Vhinz at the Malinta Tunnel exit

If you want some treat of adventure, nature and spookiness, here is one of my suggestion. And it’s best attraction is the ghost hunting tour at night!

Try Corregidor Island, a lofty island located at the entrance of Manila Bay in southwestern part of  Luzon island here in the Philippines. Located 48 kilometres (30 mi) inland.

Corregidor (Fort Mills) is the largest of the islands that form the harbor defense of Manila Bay together with El Fraile island (Fort Drum), Caballo island (Fort Hughes) and Carabao Island (Fort Frank), which were all fortified during the American occupation of the country. The island was also the site of a small military airfield, as part of the defense.

During World War II, Corregidor played an important role during the invasion and liberation of the Philippines from Japanese forces. Heavily bombarded in the latter part of the war, the ruins left on the island serves as a military memorial to several American, Filipino and Japanese soldiers who served or lost their lives on the island. Corregidor is one of the important historic and tourist sites in the country.

Corregidor is also known as “The Rock” because of its rocky landscape and heavy fortifications on the island. Its outline is shaped like a tadpole with its tail running eastward. Along with Caballo island (which lies about 2000 meters south of the “tail’s” tip), Corregidor divides the entrance of Manila Bay into the North and South Channel. Corregidor and the other fortified islands fall under the jurisdiction of the province of Cavite.

Here are some of my pictures taken when I visited that place. Enjoy!
