The Great Blue Hole

Tips from the community

The name is ominous to say the least, and a view from above will have you shuddering at the thought of what lies at the bottom. This absolutely giant marine sinkhole is 318 meters wide with a depth of 124 meters, with waters that transform from aqua to deep navy in the center. Sitting roughly 100 kilometers from the coast of Belize, it’s a super popular dive spot for those who aren’t afraid of taking a bit of a plunge into the ocean’s depths.
