    Thanks for showing these great pics!

    I live in Europe and done a lot of hunting on WW1 & WW2 battlefields, but only the WW1 Verdun trenches some 20 years ago had more "relics" flooting around ( seen on sight) then you showed us!

    Hey kiwi. Best i can say is start at million dollar point. They have all kinds of goodies right
    on the beach and in the shallows. They also have 2 troop carriers sunk in the same area.
    the bomber is just in before the bomber strip. Look around the crash site. In the wings. There were more
    50 cals in there i didn't grab.
    i couldn't really have a good hunt around because the wife
    gets bored and needs A/C and hates bugs.
    don't ask tour drivers where to go, tell them. They don't really
    know all the crash sites and bunkers. Get a map and show them.
    good luck mate. I hope you find some real treasure! Dont forget
    to share pics.

    Hey Kiwi. I would try Pulikulo first.
    But Million Dollar point is a must.
    You have to pay to go to that beach. it's not much.
    bring your own gear!
    the locals are pretty relaxed, but don't pocket any stuff from million dollar point. they will be watching.
    50 cals are there, just look about.
    some still have gun power inside!
