I was actually late but thankful that they understand my situation and waited for me (Don’t try to follow my example for they would definitely leave you) since there was a lot of detouring that happen on my way because of the fun run.

Well, enough of that and come with me as I tour Corregidor

Bird watchers have spotted species of birds at Corregidor island such as White-Collared Kingfishers, Zebra Dove, Blue Rock, Asian Glossy Starlings, Eurasian Tree Sparrows, Black-naped Orioles and just recently, Philippine Cockatoos have been spotted flying over the grassy area near the Eternal Flame.

Bird watching has now been added as a worthwhile activity in the island. Commune with nature and be one to spot what could be migratory or resident birds of the island.

Rock Balancing
Corregidor, also known as the "Rock" boasts of unique rocks called "bloodstones". These rocks have been aptly called so because they are white in color with nice splatters of red. Rock balancing is an ephemeral art (short-lived art masterpieces) which has recently been introduced in the island. This is a nature activity which aims to boost eco-tourism and build awareness on nature conservancy. Rock balancing is often linked to photography and landscape art.

The 40-foot high 655-foot long free-fall cable ride stretches from the Corregidor Inn all the way to the South Beach.
