The wiki for natural=sinkhole seems to imply it is for any type of
sinkhole, however formed. But
the wiki for sinkhole=* doesn't have anything that precisely matches this,
The natural=cliff idea is also sensible and correct for the edge of the hole
In this case, I think so. I watched a youtube video of somebody walking
along the footpath nearby
and it gave me vertigo. :)
Natural=arch on a node is a great idea for the natural bridge between the

It's not widely used and it's not documented, but it's definitely
appropriate. One of the examples
I found of it on an area also had layer=1 but I have my doubts about that.
The sea is at sea level
and the ground is at ground level, so is it layer 1 or 0? Probably best
not to bother with layer.
Small collapsed sea caves can become a “blowhole” if wave action causes

You can fit quite a few kayaks in there and there's a small beach that
could hold a dozen people. You
might get a water eruption if there were a tsunami.
That still leaves me wondering what to do with the water. It's been mapped
without specifying what type of water because there's nothing that
matches. The closest is
water=lagoon, but there's no barrier. I'm half-inclined to map it as the
sea by tweaking the
coastline: if the natural arch collapsed then it would be mapped as sea.
If the natural arch collapsed
and were replaced by a man-made bridge it would still be sea.
It's complicated. :)
