Have you ever visited The Great Blue Hole in Belize. If you haven’t, I got to tell you that it is one of the most amazing sights I’ve seen. Maybe because I got to see it in its entirety, from above, via Tropic Air. Most people dive/snorkel it but we flew over it so I guess my experience was different but I am sure it is also a great feeling regardless of how you experience it. Actually, I’m planning in diving or at least snorkeling it next year.
But today I want to ask you to visit The Great Blue Hole in another website. One where it is nominated to become the 8th Wonder of the World. It totally deserves the title.
Great Blue Hole
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Great Blue Hole is a large submarine sinkhole off the coast of Belize. It lies near the center of Lighthouse Reef, a small atoll 70 km (43 mi) from the mainland and Belize City. The hole is circular in shape, over 300 m (984 ft) across and 124 m (407 ft) deep. It was formed during several episodes of quaternary glaciation when sea levels were much lower. Analysis of stalactites found in Great Blue Hole shows that formation took place 153,000; 66,000; 60,000; and 15,000 years ago. As the ocean began to rise again, the caves were flooded. The Great Blue Hole is a part of the larger Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System, a World Heritage Site of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
