This Blue Hole was formed after a natural underground limestone cave collapsed forming this geogological wonder and exposing its true beauty to the world. This depression in the earth measures a amazing 100 feet deep and about 300 feet wide with the actual sapphire pool measuring 25 feet deep. The water that flows through this hole, as it did for many years before, can be seen flowing into an underground cavern again on the other end of the stream.
To get to the exact spot you will have to drive just about a mile further down the road from the main entrance to a second entry and parking lot. Then there is just a short walk along a wooded trail with picnic areas that leads to a set of concrete stairs with rails. These stairs lead down to the crystalline, crisp waters showing its depth through its varying natural shades of blue.
We were amazed by the sheer size and the beauty that this natural phenomenon was presenting to us as we walked closer shaded only by the jungle canopy. The water is very cool and crystal clear. This location is a serene place to relax and listen to nature as you are mesmerized by this Blue Hole in the middle of country of Belize.
