There is a Sunrise Tour where you can watch the sun's dramatic ascent above the horizon from a vantage point behind the Pacific War Memorial. To witness the spectacular colors generated by the sun as it starts to set, visitors can join the Sunset Tour at one of the breathtaking view points on top of a hill at the western end of the island facing the South China Sea. The Night Tour and exploration of the hospital laterals inside Malinta Tunnel is another exciting activity that should not be missed. It is in this tour were many visitors experience an eerie feeling when exposed to the total darkness within the innermost laterals of the tunnel ... that is, when the tour guide instructs the tour participants to switch off their flashlights. This tour is far different and a lot more unique than the regular day tour of the main Malinta Tunnel.

For those who would like to circle Corregidor on a sturdy motorized banca, there is an Island Boat Tour. This alluring tour allows you to see the island at a distance from the sea as well as the neighboring isles of La Monja and Caballo, and the nearby shores of Bataan province.
