The authority name of this spot is Hawaiyat Najm Park.It was one of the feature of the day of my tour.I completely cherished this place.Never had I seen a sinkhole where you can swim.
So the story goes with local people that the Sinkhole is made by a shooting star and consequently it got its name as Hawaiyat Najm Park(Hawaiyat implies from the air,and Najm implies Star in Arabic).But the reality is,that a downturn is made from the ocean close by and subsequently the ocean water is presently important for the Sinkhole.This is obviously because of an association of the ocean through an underground Tunnel.
It is ideal to change clothes,when entering the recreation area where there are changing rooms.When you enter the Sinkhole(as in genuine pool) there are no changing rooms.A series of steps lead you to the bottom,where you can get right in , swim,or sit on the corals which feels warm or get snacked by the different little fishes sitting on one of those stones by the Sinkhole.The Sinkhole is 40 meters wide and 20 meters down and has amazing perceivability and you can see the base very clearly.A must should visit place.
