Swimming in a seawater sinkhole in the middle of the dessert..unforgetable! If you're driving there yourself, look for signs of Najm National Park. Otherwise it's easy to... read more

Very nice to see a nature phenomenon. Ample parking space with several gazebo for family picnic. Good public toilet tough not very clean. Worth to see, especially if you group the tour along with Wadi Shab and Sur. My suggestion is to get a day tour from Muscat with this itinerary : Muscat-Wadi Shab-Sur-Bimmah Sink Hole-Muscat, all of those can... More

Visited the sinkhole on a quiet tuesday morning. Walked around it en went all the way down (couple of stairs...). The water is very clear and some fish will nurse at your feet. This is not a daytrip in itself but rather something to do when passing by.

Swimming in a seawater sinkhole in the middle of the dessert..unforgetable! If you're driving there yourself, look for signs of Najm National Park. Otherwise it's easy to miss.. Take water and food with you because there is nothing there, and enjoy a picnic inside the park. It's lovely!

You get there and you wander if you are at the right place. The sinkhole is really not visible and you need to get in the park. The drive to this is truly nice by the beach. The sink hole is peaceful, blue, slightly salted and it's really fun to bathe. Free fish pedicure for all!

This place is stunning and unusual natural beauty !. It is inside the Najm Park and look gigantic hole caused by meteor! It becomes like a big pond with crystal clear green water. You can jump off the top if you are an adrenalin junkie or just swim there. It is about 2 hours drive from Muscat so you can... More

I'm not a water babe. Conditions have to be pretty good for me to get into the water. I had no doubts getting into the water here. The spot was easy to get to, signposted from the main road. Free parking. No entry fee. The steps made it really easy to get down to the water. Most tourists seemed to... More

This serene place is located near Dibab village, is a must see if you are in Muscat. Naturally formed sink hole provides a spectacular view and the water is clean. And enjoy a natural fish spa as much as you want! There is a park around the sink hole don't waste much time on that. Toilets are there, but not... More

What a place. Once you get to the park where the sinkhole is located you are not quite sure what to expect, but once you get there and you look down WOW......... what an amazing place. You must take a swim. If you fail to take a swim you will be missing out on an amazing experience. The water is... More
