Officer Beach 2018-04-06

Officer Beach, a revisit, my friend Mike Ross pointed out a trail that went to the Officer Beach on Corregidor Island, the former Fort Mills. This trail runs along a ridgeline that divides the Officer Beach, then it descends to the Officer Beach Road from there are steps all the way down to the beach. I checked out the beach, the bath houses, the steps, and some sections of the road and established this album with 38 images. This is the URL:
