Which Is the Biggest Ocean In the World and What Is the Deepest Ocean On Earth?

The Pacific Ocean is the largest in the world.

It’s twice the size of the Atlantic Ocean, covering 64 million square miles (165.7 million sq km).

The Pacific Ocean is also the deepest ocean on earth.

At the Mariana Trench, the deepest area of the Pacific, the seafloor is 36,198 feet (11,033 m), almost 7 miles, below the surface.

The Pacific Ocean is so large that all the earth’s continents could fit within its area with plenty of room left over.

The Pacific Ocean holds almost half the world’s water.

More than one-third of the world’s people live within 60 miles of a coastline.

The Indian Ocean is almost as large as the Atlantic Ocean.
