Oman has many sink holes and Bimmah sink hole stands out unique. The municipality has developed a garden called Hawiyat Najim around the Bimmah sink hole for tourists to enjoy. The park is on the road from Dabab to Bimmah in the wilayat of Quriyat. Take the Quriyat-Sur carriageway and after few kilometres you will see a signboard of Hawiyat Najim/Bimmah which will lead to the sink hole. The giant depression has a crystal clear pool where one can swim and is pretty deep. There are steps to get inside the hole. The municipality has created a number of facilities like toilets, canopies, children playground, benches and family gathering areas. It is said that old local name Hawiyat Najim refers to the belief that a meteorite had resulted in creating this strange deep hole while geologists believe that this sinkhole was formed as a result of tertiary limestone beds dissolving and then collapsing inward. ( Courtesy: Mr.Aftab H.Kola, )


Hawiyat Najim Park is located on the road from Dabab to Bima, within the wilayat of Quriyat, and connects with the Quriyat-Sur road. It is about 35 Km from Quriyat. There is beautiful park but main attraction is a Blue hole filled with clear water

The park is facilitated with sitting sheds, umbrellas, children’s playground, chairs, benches, lawns, footpaths and family gathering areas. Muscat Municipality had started developing this park in October 2002 to provide another outlet for tourists, visitors and Omanis as well. The place is fitted with several facilities providing comfort in the wilderness and the site is on a flat plateau spanning around 160,000 sq.m, around 2km from the beach towards the mountain, with a deep blue hole filled with brackish water known as Hawiyat Najim. The hole is located 25m from sea level. Stories on the creation of Hawiyat Najim vary, as some people believe that a meteorite had resulted in creating this strange deep hole, while geologists believe that the hole was caused by erosion, which helped sculpt the mountains and increase the depth of the hole. However, the real reason is still unknown
