Vanuatu's largest island has beautiful beaches is a paradise for water lovers. Not far offshore is the world’s largest intact diveable WWII wreck, the SS President Coolidge, which sank in 1942. WWII brought in over 100,000 allied troops using the island as a base of pacific operations. Goods were imported that the locals had never seen before. The harbor would have over 100 ships at any given time. Over 40 cinemas, four military hospitals, and five airfields were built. Much of the traditional culture does remain, though.
