The uncanny wonderfulness made by nature always attracts people’s admiration, and Aruba’s Natural Bridge is admired by all!
The Formation of the Bridge
In Aruba, there is an elapsed stone bridge that was naturally formed out of coral limestone.
When the lower part of the cliff’s soft rock gradually eroded by the sea for hundreds – or maybe thousands of years – the underside was cut, and Aruba’s Natural Bridge was formed.
Natural bridges are usually formed in places that are susceptible to erosion by seawater, rivers, or weathering.
The Size of the Bridge
Located on the northern coast of Aruba, between the Bushiribana Gold Mine Ruins and Andicuri Beach, the Natural Bridge is about 23-feet high and 100-feet long.
The Passing of History
However, the Natural Bridge, which had seen the island’s change over the centuries, has suffered a lot.
The bridge collapsed during Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
The remains of the bridge remain a tourist attraction if you visit Aruba, although the bridge is no longer there.
It is admired as being born by nature’s uncanny work but also was destroyed by nature’s force.
There are other bridges on the island can be visited.
The Baby Bridge is nearby, which is also made by nature.
