Million Dollar Point
This fascinating dive (max depth 40 meters/120 feet) shows you coral encrusted war equipment as well as a small island trader and the salvage vessel the El Retiro. There is easy access from the shore and the excellent marine life and coral growth warrants a visit. There is more fish life on this site now than ever before, indicating substantial coral growth on this unique site. 

HISTORY: after WWII, hundreds of tonnes of US equipment was dumped here - from bulldozers and aero engines to trucks and jeeps. After the war, American efforts to sell the equipment were unsuccessful even at the most nominal price - so rather than give it to the then Condominium government, the Americans dumped the lot.
