4.3
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Dibba Al Bay Ah
Cool off and take a dip in the clear waters of Bimmah Sink hole. The picturesque basin reaches 20 m (65 ft) at its deepest point, and was formed naturally due to erosion and the collapse of its limestone floor. Take some postcard-like shots of the vivid, emerald-colored water of the pool, go for a swim, or have a picnic on the tiny sinkhole beach.

  • Went here with my wife and a group of friends. It's well worth a visit and is a good place to cool off on the way to Wadi Shab. The only disappointing thing was that someone had crapped in it and ther...  more »
  • If you are on your way to Sur it's a good option for cooling off but frankly there are a ton of wadi's that beat it hands down if you are tight on time. Good news is that it is easy to find and you ca...  more »
  • I went there last Sept. 2017. The sinkhole can be easily located using a GPS or google maps. The omani government made a park surrounding it so there's enough place for family and sight seers to rest....  more »

  • Great place! Beautiful little swimming spot in the middle of nowhere. Free entry and tons for kids to do stuff. Had a blast swimming, cooling off and jumping off the rocks. Good place to come and hang out with the family. Not much space down in the sinkhole but plenty up top. I enjoyed it!
  • Definitely worth the visit. Its a unique experience, must go down the stairs & enjoy the cold water. And if you are a bit of a daredevil, then do the dive from the top. The water in the middle is quite shallow!
  • I enjoyed the route to this place more than the place itself. With too many people swimming in this small area i don't think it is hygiene at all to swim there Also there is a big room for development. For example there are no restaurants at all. There are no shops selling any thing. Only a place with fence in the middle of the desert The view is good and the stair to the sink hole is steep with very high steps.
  • It's very nice place. You will enjoy the driving around one and half hour from Muscat and will see something never seen before.
  • It's a must for all Oman visitors. It's a superb place and fascinating place in South Sharquiyah region of Oman. It's very close to the sea coast and a natural spring formed with mountain backdrop, having very clean water. Good for having a dip and swim. It's also called Bimmah sinkhole. There are steps to go down to reach the water. It is wonderful surprise to have such a hole in middle of nowhere. It has got a park in addition to the sink hole, where one can relax and picnic. It was also told that it is formed due to the fall of an asteroid long time ago.
