Oyster Island sits just off the coast of Espiritu Santo, the Vanuatu island that was the second largest Allied base in the Pacific during World War Two.

There were four or five airstrips on Santo during the Second War, with one of the fighter bases just to the right of this photo, and a number aircraft that ran out of fuel before making it back to the runway ditched in the lagoon.

Guests staying at Oyster Island can grab flippers, a snorkel, and mask and explore the rusting aircraft that now sit just below the surface.
