Want to spend the night in Corregidor Island? Good move! It’s a different experience and you can also avail of activities that are only open for stay in guests. There are actually four options where you can spend the night here:

  1. Stay at the Cordillera Inn
  2. Stay at the cabanas near the beach
  3. Stay at the hostel near the wharf, and
  4. Pitch a tent at the clearings near South Beach

Of the four options, the best one is, well, no contest, the cabanas! Built sometime in the late 90s, yes, it’s a bit dated but you don’t have much options. Earlier than Corregidor Inn, I do love this option as the cabanas are quite spacious inside. It’s a bit heavy set with its tejas or tiled roofing, hexagonal shape and with a short spiral wooden staircase leading to the landing and into the cabanas.

All are facing the Resort Beach in a location that is quite with a beach that is ideal for stonebalancing or bathing. Each is amply spaced from each other on a grassy lot with cemented geometrical pathways leading to each unit. During early mornings, or early evenings, depending on the season, it can be cool and breezy outside.

When the heat becomes oppressive outside, you can retreat into the spacious and airconditioned interior. The beds are comfortable and pillows soft. The toilet and bath has marble tiling as well as hot and cold water. No wifi though, as like the rest of the island.

While the cabanas are located farther from the main congregation area that is Corregidor Inn, there are hourly shuttle services that ferries guests to and from the cabanas to the inn from as early as 5AM till 10PM, so there’s really no problem with transportation or getting to both places. Food can only be had at the restaurant at the inn but the shed fronting the beach where the guard is posted has potable water and light snacks and instant coffee for sale.
