Part of Barrier Belize
This famous sinkhole is part of the huge series of coral reefs off the coast of Belize that is known as Barrier Belize. At a length of 300 kilometers, it is a natural form of protection for the Belizean coast. In 1996, Barrier Belize was added to the list of UNESCO Heritage sites. It is considered one of the most exceptional coral systems in the world.
