And you will finally see the Blue Hole “Dina” — one of the oldest and deepest underwater attractions on the planet, the depth of which reaches about 200 meters. It is believed that the Blue Funnel was formed naturally, under the influence of rain. It happened before the Ice Age about fifteen thousand years ago. After the catastrophic cold era, the cave was flooded due to rising sea levels. Despite the conclusions of scientists, locals prefer to believe the legend, which says that the giant funnel was made by the devil himself, who still lives at the bottom of the cave, dragging those who dare to go down too deep.
