The local government of Cavite City has partnered with a non-profit organization to preserve and redevelop the historic Corregidor Island.
Cavite City Mayor Denver Chua signed a memorandum of agreement with the key officials of the Corregidor Island Foundation last October 1 to revive the site and, in turn, boost the city’s tourism.
“Kasama sa kasunduan ang pagkakaroon ng ating sariling opisina at pagiging bahagi sa development ng Corregidor Island. Isa sa ating mga plano ang pagpapaayos sa isla at maayos na mapreserve ang mga historical relics nito upang mapalawig ang turismo ng ating lungsod,” said Chua in a Facebook post.
Corregidor Island, home to World War II relics, is now touted as the second most-visited tourist destination in the province.
The 9-square-kilometer island is located around 48 kilometers west of Manila and 37 kilometers away from Samonte Park in Cavite City. Tourists get to visit the island via private ferry boats.
