The Blue Hole Facts

in World Facts by

The Blue Hole is located just off of the coast of Belize, near the Ambergris Caye. The Blue Hole began as a limestone cave in our last Ice Age. After ages of erosion the cave collapsed leaving the scenic beauty we see today! The Blue Hole is almost perfectly circular reaching 300m (1000ft) across and 120m (400ft) deep. The blue cave is perfect spot for all divers because of its beauty and geological history.

  1. more of a question than a comment

    Do you need some sort of a permit to be allowed to swim in this blue beauty? How many people visit each year?

  2. I like how they call this “The Blue Hole” as if its the only one on the planet…false. There is a blue hole not 10 miles from where I sit, in The Bahamas. If you want breathtaking, come have a look at ours, and we have many spread out throughout the islands. I’m sure most people know this isnt the only blue hole but just thought I’d let those who didnt know, there are others.

  3. HI, IM FROM BELIZE… I’VE NEVER ACTUALLY BEEN TO THE BLUE HOLE BUT I HEAR THE VIEW IS MIND BLOWING. I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT THOUSANDS VISIT PER YEAR, WITH ABOSOLUTELY NO REGRETS. I RECOMMEND IT!

  4. Sorry. Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.
    I am from India and too bad know English, give true I wrote the following sentence: “Tylenol and synthroid to be acquired by a first time buyer choose entry filed under – tylenol and synthroid.”

    Waiting for a reply 8), Athan.

  5. It is absolutely not the only blue hole in the World, but one of the most well known and geologically interesting. I would recommend it 10 thousands times over!!! Que Viva Belizeeee!
