Corregidor is an extinct volcanic caldera located at the entrance to Manila Bay in the Republic of the Philippines. The caldera is composed of the islands of Corregidor and Caballo in the province of Cavite, which are believed to be the exposed rim of the volcano.
The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) lists the volcano as potentially active. The reason for this listing rather than inactive, is not disclosed on the PHIVOLCS website listing.
