This is an excellent dive site. There is a large range of depths that all contain so much to see. The old vehicles are mostly intact and it is overwhelming to see so many in the one location. Highly recommended.

Fantastic snorjwlling off million dollar point. We must have gone a relatively calm day as the water was smooth and warm and had great visibility - easily able to see all the cool stuff in the water - highlights being what appeared to be a cannon and the wreckage of a small boat that was home to many fish. Definitely... More

Great shore dive to experience the history and waste of the US and its machinery and vehicles just dumped after the war effort and to help rebuild the roads etc etc

This is a world iconic place and a must visit if you are into snorkelling or diving. It's a pity the road out to the point was so poorly maintained when we travelled it.

The dumping site for WW11 equipment is apparently an interesting dive spot. We did not dive but spoke to some visitors who recommended it for the sights underwater of rusting vehicles and machinery. There is a small fee at the entrance, I think it was $AUD5.00 each. Some stalls are set up just off the beach which sell recovered items.... More

I enjoyed this much more than I expected, lots of deteriorating machinery with abundant fishlife and patches of superb coral. Well worth an hour or two!

Amazing place to visit, there has been a lot said about the history of equipment that was dumped at the end of the war, slightly haunting due to the fact that it was a wet day and the wind up.

An amazing place to visit but more suited if you want to scuba dive. Not much to see on the beach now after so many years have passed. Still if you go for a walk you can make out machinery items, copper, stainless steel etc. Coral has grown over most items. If you google it you can picture it in... More

We spent about an hour here and we found that to be enough. I hesitated to go in because the water was rough but my partner talked me into going in for a snorkel and I'm glad I did. I found it eerie and fascinating knowing the history of how it became to be dumped here. If your in Santo... More
