This small island, shaped like a tadpole, has become a memorial
and open-air museum commemorating the World War II stand of
Filipino and American troops against the Japanese invaders. The
island is the largest of several at the entrance to Manila Bay,
laying off the tip of the Bataan Peninsula, about 26 miles from the
city. Its strategic position made it a prime candidate for the last
stand against the Japanese in the Pacific War, and its
three-and-a-half square miles (9 sq km) of dry land remains
littered with the detritus of battle. Guided tours of the island
are available by arrangement with the Corregidor Visitor's
Information Centre in Manila.
Transportation: There are regular ferry services available from
