Espiritu Santo

Espiritu Santo, the largest island in the country and only an hour by plane from Port Vila, is unspoilt and popular for snorkelling, diving and its deserted beaches. There are also many World War II sites such as Million Dollar Point, where the Americans dumped all their hardware into the ocean after the war, crashed B17 bombers, the destroyer USS "Tucker" and Santo’s most famous attraction – the 22 000 ton liner turned troopship SS "President Coolidge" that sank and is now a magnet for divers from all over the world. The Coolidge offers the world’s largest accessible wreck diving and there are many other wreck and reef dives to excite even the most experienced divers.
