Great Blue Hole, Belize - North Amrica

An underwater sinkhole that is located near the centre of Lighthouse Reef, the Great Blue Hole is circular in shape and over 1000 feet across and 400 feet deep. The Lighthouse Reef is a small atoll which is 60 miles from the Belize City. Jacques-Yves Cousteau made this site famous when he announced it as one of top ten sights for scuba diving. The place is called so due to the deep blue colour of the water which is imparted to it by the great depth of the sinkhole.

The Great Blue Hole was formed originally as the limestone cave system when the sea levels were much lower, during the Ice Age. But as the ice melted and the level of sea began to rise, the roof of these caves collapsed due to flooding thus creating the great underwater sinkhole. The divers can see massive limestone stalactites hang down from what was once the ceiling of air-filled caves before the end of the last Ice Age. Only the experts at diving are suggested to go and see the great sight that this Great Blue Hole has to offer to the tourists who come there.
