Naval Station Pascual Ledesma, also known as Naval Base Cavite, is a military installation of the Navy of the Philippines in Cavite City in the Province of Cavite. The 9 hectares (22 acres) naval base is located at the easternmost end of Cavite Point in the San Roque district (specifically Fort San Felipe) of the city. It was named after Cmdre. Pascual Ledesma (b. May 17, 1843 - d. June 6, 1917), a leader of the Philippine revolution and the first Officer-In-Command of the Philippine Navy.
Naval Base Cavite provides support services to the Philippine Navy and other Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) tenant units in the base complex, such as refueling, re-watering, shore power connections, berthing, ferry services, tugboat assistance, sludge disposal services and housing.
Located within the base is the Cavite Naval Hospital (CNH), a medical facility that provides hospital and out-patient services to Philippine Navy personnel and their dependents.
