The Great Blue Hole in Belize

The Great Blue Hole in Belize is a great natural wonder. It is a submarine sinkhole, which lies next to the Lighthouse Reef. It is considered to be a large sinkhole: it is over 300 m (984 ft) across and 124 m (407 ft) deep.

The hole was formed during the Ice Age, when the sea levels were much lower. When its levels rose, the water flooded the cave, which resulted in this fascinating view.

Scuba diving is the most popular attraction here. The water is crystal clear and the marine life is rich indeed: you can enjoy the company of groupers, nurse sharks, reef sharks, turtles under the water. And the reef itself is definitely worth seeing.
