Caballo Island

Caballo Island, seen from Corregidor Island, is one of the islands guarding the mouth of Manila Bay. 

During the Second World War, Caballo Island (which means horse in Spanish) was heavily fortified and, together with Corregidor, Carabao and El Fraile islands, was part of the harbor defenses of Manila

Corregidor and Caballo are thought to be the rims of the Corregidor Caldera, an extinct volcano located at the bottom of Manila Bay.
