 "Great Blue Hole" is located off the coast of Belize, a country in Central America. It is located in the center of Lighthouse Reef Atoll Reef and a round hole with a diameter of 305 m and 123 m depth.

Millions of years ago "Great Blue Hole" was a dry cave, which have formed stalactites and stalagmites, but rising sea level after the last glacial periods, it was flooded. It is believed that an earthquake caused the collapse of the cave and the formation of the blue hole.

"Great Blue Hole" is a national monument in Belize and in 1997 was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO.
