We went with a lot of expectations. However, when we got there, we did not see any signs, which is traditionally seen at a good tourist spot. It was very hot. I did not see any vendor selling water or sodas. We took some pictures and left. There were some men swimming. We drove all the way from Ruwi to see the sinkhole, and were dissapointed. If it's on your way, then it may be okay to do a quick stop to see the place. However, I would not in hindsight drive all the way just to see the sinkhole.

One of the famous place to visit and recommended to see by tourists. Amazing place and interesting. Clean water and nice for a swim.

Third time we have been to the sinkhole. Family loved it. Swimming in the fresh water just couple hundred yards from the sea. Would love to know how deep the water is at it gets black in the middle. Seen some guys jumping from the top, although would not attempt myself. Sat in shallow part where tiny fish where nibbling at everyone's feet. Great place to stop off at.

This is one of the most incredible places I have been to. Beautiful water to swim in and make sure you jump off the ledge (strength required to climb the rope to the ledge). Fish nibble your feet and give you a spa treatment. Steps are steep to get down for people who can't walk well. There is a bathroom to change in but it is very minimal and has squatting toilets only, bring your own toilet paper. No fee to enter. Follow the signs to the Hawiyat Najm Park.

This is a very nice place to visit, a hole in mountain with a lake on it! Nice to go with friends and family!
