NileGuide Expert tip:
Great activity for the family or those interested in history
History buffs will enjoy a visit to this nearby island. Corregidor, also known as "The Rock" was the final bastion where Filipino and American forces under General Douglas MacArthur fought and held out against the Japanese army during World War Two. Sun Cruises provides a day-tour package including the round trip ferry travel (26 miles or a 75-minute journey), a buffet lunch, and a professionally guided tour, for a total of 5 hours on the island. In addition to the many century-old building ruins and gun emplacements, the island is a wonderful place for hiking, bird watching, photography, and just relaxing in its clean and peaceful environment. There are also several small cafes for casual dining or gathering for drinks and music.
