Don't go unless you dive ! Beach is terrible , broken bottles, cans and rubbish . Watch your step getting into the water , rocks everywhere.
tried to snorkel but water was too merky , got to have fins as the best stuff is in deeper water.
You can see a lot of stuff at low tide and remember to take aqua shoes.
1000vt entrance fee.

We snorkeled this historic spot in Jan/24 and ABSOLUTLEY LOVED IT!!! If you're into WW2 history or are just a keen snorkeler, this one is a must. On the relics side, we could make out old artillery canon barrels, bulldozer tracks, a forklift, old wheel axel's and tires, the hull of an old boat and plenty of old steel framing structures.

But it's the amount of coral that now grows here and fish life of all sizes that inhabits it that was the most impressive. You have to get a bit away from the shore for the best visibility, we were in about 10 meters of water and it was truly breathtaking.

A must for any keen snorkeler.

Loved snorkelling here. We simply walked into the sea (just to the left of the concrete pier) and from about 20m in you start seeing the scrapped equipment and the sealife. Water a little choppy though we were there by 9am. Just a different snorkelling experience that my daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed with lots to see and lots of fish. We paid 500VT each. Didn't walk up the beach to see any of the facilities or cafe etc. as had a hire car and were on our way around the island.

The main purpose of my cruise was to see the remains of the American equipment dumped into the bay.

Low tide made viewing easy, but it's rough going over the rusty metal and broken, albeit smooth, Coke and beer bottles.

I'm so glad I went as I got an insight on how the yanks treat local people when they 'come to their aid'. Pure vandalism.

Local kids hanging around smashing fresh beer bottles did spoil the experience for me.

A must do for anybody interested in WWII in the Pacific.

A miraculous transformation of a junkyard into a man-made reef. Nature has taken back her own. soft corals, colours of pinks, mauves, blues, purples, Every nook and cranny is occupied by yet another school of fish. Variety and size amaze. Also a dugong.

We traveled privately so had the entirely man-made reef to ourselves with the exception of one dugong. Can't say enough great things about how the coral and fish have taken back their ocean. Saw a boat, jeeps with tyres with hairs still on them, everything covered with moss and hard and soft corals. For snorkellers don't miss it.

We visited on the 2nd week of July 2022, right after the reopening from the pandemic. We did not go snorkeling or diving, as we have a young one not yet comfortable in the water; however, even if you walk along the shore (around low tide), you can view some of the items. There are bits sticking up, like landing mat pieces and other machinery. If you like history, then it's still worth a look. The cost was 500VU.

For a pretty ordinary looking beach, the views under the water are what Million dollar point is all about. Aprox 10 to 20 meters from the beach lies the wreckage of old ships, trains, tanks, aircraft. It was quite spectacular to be able to swim down to the open deck of an old landing craft ship.
The facilities on shore are a small shop and some benches under lean to’s. It costs $500 vatu to visit, and aprox $1000 Vatu by taxi from Luganville

A local driver took us to Million Dollar point and we snorkelled straight off the beach. The fish and coral are well established and although there is no clear separate wreck some of the equipment can still be recognised. Only a short distance from where the cruise ship docked and definitely worth it.
