The Belize Barrier Reef is a main place of interesting in the country.

Mainly the reef is fomous for the Mysterious Belize Great Blue Hole, which was formed as a limestone cave system during the last glacial period when the sea level was 400 to 500 feet below present time and was dryland. Last glacial period began about 120,000 years ago and end about 15,000 years ago. Reaching the maximum extension 26,500 years ago. At the end the ocean began to rise, the caves flooded, and the roof collapsed.
