Bimmah Sinkhole

Located just south of the village of Dibab in the Muscat governorate of Oman.
It is roughly 50m by 70m large and about 27 metres deep. 
The Bimmah Sinkhole is located in the Hawiyat Najm Park – which literally meaning Meteor Fall Park in Arabic.
This name originates from the legend that tells of a shooting star that fell on the on the coastal plain between Quriat and Sur and left the hole that can be seen today. 
The Bimmah Sinkhole is connected to the sea and the emerald green colour of the lake is often attributed to the mixing of mineral rich fresh water from the underground rivers and the saline water of the nearby ocean.
Bimmah Sinkhole is on route to either Wadi Shab and a visit can be a few minutes or easily a few hours. The surrounding park has also become a popular place for picnics and BBQ’s
