The Sims 4 Hidden Area:
Finding Forgotten Grotto
There are two hidden areas included in The Sims 4, one in each World - The Forgotten Grotto in Oasis Springs, and Sylvan Glade in Willow Creek. Forgotten Grotto is accessible only to Sims that have level 10 Handiness skill. Once you've unlocked these areas, you can easily return to them at any time without having to go through all those steps - just travel to the neighborhood and head right in!
Here is a video walkthrough for Finding Forgotten Grotto. Watch it here or follow the link to subscribe to our channel for content notifications.
Where to find the Forgotten Grotto in Oasis Springs
Hidden Area: Forgotten Grotto
This area has two entrances, both of which are in Oasis Springs. For the purposes of the Guide, I'll use the one found in Desert Bloom Park. Look to the screenshot above to see the mine entrance, which is far back behind the park. The second is down the cliff behind the Landgraab Mansion. Both entrances require Level 10 Handiness.
This Cave Requires Level 10 Handiness to Open
Once you've got the door down, you can select the Wide Path, Climb Ladder, Step onto Ledge, Travel to Grotto. You get as many tries as you like at this, so you don't have to memorize the four steps.

Catching a Batfish by Fishing in The Forgotten Grotto
This is the only place you can find the Batfish. I caught one, without bait, at the first fishing spot on the right upon entering the cave. I also caught several Health Potions in the process.
