The Bimmah sinkhole is a fabulous place to spend a couple of hours. It's stunning, as the photo shows. There were just enough people there to make it fun but it wasn't crowded. There are plenty of shaded places to sit around for a picnic before, or after, going down to the water but you would have to bring your... More

Not all sat navs will recognise the sinkhole destination, so put Hawiyat or Hawiyat Najm Park in to find it easier. The Omanis have built a lovely little park around the sinkhole, very nicely landscaped with plants and lawn and even a kids play area.

The sinkhole is beautiful! I was there around sunset, and the only one in the park (february). PROTIP: park your car somewhere across the shore close to the sinkhole, go swim in the sinkhole and after that spend the night in your car your set up a tent! You will be able to watch the sun rise from the sea... More

Amazing natural place... nice place for a day outing, quiet. Enjoy swimming in the hole or just keep your legs in water to relax, while tiny fishes bite your skin, feels nice.
