The Great Blue Hole is located in the Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System, about 60 miles away from Belize City and it is believed that this hole is the world’s largest sea-hole.
The Blue Hole became a World Heritage site in 1997.
The Great Blue Hole is surrounded by shallow water of Lighthouse Reef Atoll, a nearly perfect circle in the middle of a shallow reef.
The Great Blue Hole is protected by the Belize Audubon Society and is a Belize National Monument.
The Blue Hole is home to plenty of rare animal species and forms of life and is a big attraction for divers.
