It is located where the boats from Bataan land, just inside the Fort Mills North Mine Dock, North Shore, Bottomside, Corregidor Island.

Not sure that these are the right trees for this soil but they are hanging in there and I take a picture, every time I come to see how they are doing.

Zf087. These are new electrical wires running from Bottomside to the Malinta Hill Tunnel; I assume the electricity for the Video Light and Sound Show comes directly from the CFI generators in the Engineering Ravine now.

Zf086. This is the West Entrance of Malinta Hill Tunnel. In the about last 4 years or so rock slides at this entrance has become a problem. Hence, we see the new sign re the rock slides and a warning to stay out of the area. I assume when they had the Video Light and Sound Show during my visit days that the visitors entered and departed from the East Entrance.

I had intention to walk on it but the foot trail on the South Road has also disappeared, so I cancelled that until my next visit. The Navy Tunnels can be reached this way, next time.

Zf072. First a picture of the former Boardwalk restaurant, it is located just inside to former Fort Mills Mine Dock and at the sea wall where the boats from Bataan land. With the hotel closure and the closure of this place there is now only one eating place on the island, the employees cook for them self. The only eating place is the former MacArthur Café and is managed by the Corregidor Foundation Inc. (CFI) and they also manage the former Mac Arthur rooms for rent.
