A link to Natural Arch was e-mailed
Windward Coast, Aruba
White-sand beaches and calm Caribbean waters rule the southwestern side of Aruba, but the northeast coast of this Dutch island is wild and rugged. Atlantic Ocean trade winds pound rough surf on its rocky shores, cutting into coral limestone to form natural bridges. This arch was once one of the largest of its kind in the world, spanning more than 100 feet. Alas, it famously collapsed in September 2005. The site nonetheless remains a popular stop for tour guides to tell its story and to showcase the nearby smaller natural arch, Baby Bridge.
