Million Dollar Point


This famous underwater sight, which lies a 10-minute drive away from the center of Luganville, is where hundreds of tons of American military equipment worth around U.S. $1 million—hence the name—was deliberately dumped after the end of World War II to prevent the “greedy British” from taking it for free (the Brits had refused to pay even nominal prices). Still rusting away beneath the water’s surface, the equipment is a boon for divers and snorkeling fans, who are free to explore the coral-covered bulldozers, cranes and forklifts.
