You Can Swim in This Stunning Sinkhole in Oman

Long attributed to a meteorite, this beautiful swimming hole is actually a naturally occurring sinkhole.

Sinkholes are often the result of groundwater eating away at rocks like limestone and carbonate. Caverns form as the rocks dissolve, and eventually the ground above caves in, sometimes taking cars, houses, and even the occasional pizza place with it.
