Map showing all locations mentioned on Wikipedia article:

This is a list of places below mean sea level that are on land; not in tunnels, mines, under water, or existing temporarily as a result of ebbing of sea tide. All figures are in meters below sea level:

Deeper and larger than any of the trenches in the list above is the Bentley Subglacial Trenchmarker (2,540 m) in Antarctica. It is subglacial, meaning that it is permanently covered by the largest ice cap in the world. If the ice melted it would be covered by sea.

In the past

The biggest dry land area below sea level that has been known to exist in the geological past, as measured by continuous volume of atmospheric air below sea level, was the dry bed of the Mediterranean Seamarker in the late Miocene period during the Messinian salinity crisis.
