Covering 600,000 square feet of sea floor 40 feet under the sea, this artistic interpretation of Plato’s Lost City of Atlantis is the world’s largest artificial reef that also functions as an underwater cemetery to promote a “green” burial alternative.

The Department of Environmental Resource Management reported that marine life in the area grew from zero to thousands two years after it was opened.
