|The Bimmah Sinkhole|
For first time tourist and visitor, you wouldn’t expect that there’s a sinkhole in the fenced off Park area from the outside. I think they made a park within so that people can have time to enjoy and have picnic with their families and love ones. There’s a toilet/change-room at the entrance gate provided for guests. But there’s no food stalls or restaurants so better bring your own snacks and water. The park entrance is absolutely free!
Inside the park more people have now congregated. We just decided to take a quick peek at the hole then have our lunch at Ras Al Hadd later.

It's a vast and stunning underground cave with underwater tunnel that connects river with the sea that's 500 meters away from the distance. Apparently, the emerald green color is a result of the salty sea water mixing with freshwater. The sinkhole, that’s 50 meters wide and 20 meters deep, was created when the limestone ceiling naturally caved in and the unstable layers collapsed. But the locals say that a piece of meteor fell to the earth and made this huge hole. They call the place Bait Al Afreet which means "house of the demon".
