Rehan, from Aquamarine Dives, took us on a great dive to a weird WW2 collection of military equipment just metres from shore. Excellent range of fish, rays and coral etc.

For Divers ..this place is priceless! For those interested in ww11 history..its not to be missed.
I scuba dived Million Dollar point and it just blew me away. I had read about it and seen vids and photos, but when I saw it for myself it was unbelievable. There were some who snorkelled it and they were even amazed at what they could see.
There is a lot of fossilied remains on the beach as well. Further east and the end of he point are lots of remains of helmets in stacks, medical supplies, diiner plates, buckles and press studs from clothing, dog tags etc etc, tons and tons of coke bottles (some of which you can still read the date). Apparently the US Soldiers were rationed 2 bottles per day each.
If you do a boat dive with Santo Island dive, be sure to get a guide to walk along the beach with you and show you.
If you are thinking about going to Santo, you probably are intending to go to Million Dollar Point so I dont need to tell you.
My advice..Look along the beaches too,take plenty of water.

I was here in 2011 and this is still one of the most amazing areas I ever snorkelled. You simply step off the beach and you are over the top of the wreck - a highlight on the beautiful island of Espiritu Santo. There is sometimes a village fee - but make sure your taxi driver negotiates this for you

It was too choppy to snorkel on the days we were on Santo as a the bay is very exposed. Having said that it was well worth a visit just to wander along the shore and look at the remains of the military equipment burnt there by the US army (what a waste). You can still see complete motors and various equipment parts all fused together with melted glass etc. Fantastic place for beachcombing.

The waves were really rough the day that we went but we managed to get in the water and do some snorkeling, very colorful decent size fish. Amazing how they live among the military debris left behind by the US Army. Worth a visit if you will get in the water, otherwise you wont see much there.
