The Great Blue Hole is a giant submarine sinkhole off the coast of Belize.

It lies near the center of Lighthouse Reef, a small atoll 70 km from the mainland and Belize City.This is a popular spot among recreational scuba divers who are lured by the opportunity to dive in sometimes crystal-clear water and meet several species of fish, including Midnight Parrotfish, Caribbean reef shark, and other juvenile fish species.

Other species of sharks, such as the bull shark and hammerheads, have been reported there, but are not regularly sighted. Usually, day trips to the Great Blue Hole are full-day trips from the coastal tourist communities in Belize.
