Cool off and take a dip in the clear waters of Bimmah Sinkhole. 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.

  • Nature's wonder at its best. We had been here in the month of August. However we didn't get into water as it was too crowded this place is a wonder and must visit. Swimming is possible. Visit during evening time. There is a park along side where kids can play and enjoy. Neatly maintained.
  • The sink hole is amazing. A paradise for divers. It’s really deep (May be 20+ meters) and water is crystal clear. It is located in the middle of a small park and there are washrooms and change rooms so that you can take a shower after swimming (the water in the sink hole is a bit salty). They have a parking area and there is no entry fee for entering the park. There are different types of fishes in the sinkhole. Make sure you wear proper cloths when entering the park as they security May stop you if the cloths are not appropriate. There are places to play for kids in the parks it can be a good place to visit with family.
