Must do if your a keen snorkeler or diver. Unfortunately the day I snorkelled here was very choppy and water was murky, but still great experience see all the old wartime machinery that was dumped here. Definitely will do again when back in Santo. Hopefully on a calmer day

this is an eyesore. Tons of dumped metal equipment and very little sea life. it is a terrible way to treat the environment and the people of vanuatu. I think the Americans should come back and clean it up

We went here with Paradise Tours and were just blown away by the snorkeing. The visibility was so clear, the coral and fish have been reclaiming the area since the U.S. military dumped their disused machinery in the bay after WWII and blew it up, a million dollars worth at that time, hence the name. You can still make out... More

When we arrived in Luganville , we were very fortunate to meet Jackson . He drives a taxi by day and sings in a reggae band by night . For a very reasonable price , Jackson took us on a grand tour of the sights of Luganville , including Million Dollar Point , Euart's Memorial , the site of SS... More

Such an awesome place to snorkel. There is a heap of machinery and objects left from World War 2. Loads of amazing fish and coral. Defiantly worth going to.

Million Dollar Bay is about 15 min drive from Luganville, we paid 150 VT to get there by local minibus and 1000VT as an entrance fee but what a place.. ! We cannot believe there is no more publicity about this snorkelling site. This is not only about the Americans dumping there surplus of army material in the ocean. This... More

We decided not to dive the point but snorkel instead and it was worth it, most of the relics are at 3-4 metres and can be easily descended too.

It's quite amazing to see so many vehicles just piled up on each other and well worth at least one dive and maybe a second, but if you're going to Santo to dive, the Coolidge is the place to spend most of your time in my opinion.
