Million Dollar Bay, Luganville

3.8
#3 of 8 in Sightseeing in Vanuatu
Landmark Tourist Spot
Snorkelers will be in heaven at Million Dollar Bay, a stretch of white sand shoreline and clear waters, where visitors can explore World War II wreckage just offshore. At the end of the war, Americans dumped gear and equipment into the sea, including heavy equipment like bulldozers, containers, artillery, and boats. As the years have passed, marine life has incorporated the foreign items into their environment. Today you can snorkel above the wreckage now decorated with reefs and tropical fish that creates a unique sight. Make Million Dollar Bay part of your personalized Espiritu Santo itinerary using our Espiritu Santo vacation builder.

Where to stay in Espiritu Santo

You'll find most of Espiritu Santo's accommodations clustered in the southeastern corner of the island, where the city of Luganville offers everything from basic beach houses and bungalows, to boutique hotels and upscale resorts. Luganville's city center boasts many hotels within walking distance of most local attractions and beaches, with quieter guesthouses an easy jaunt inland by car. Head up the eastern coast of the island to find beach lodges and sizeable resorts strung out along the shores of the Coral Sea. Due to the island's mountainous and forested interior, most areas away from the coast offer little other than family-run guesthouses and basic hotels, though these often offer budget-friendly deals.
