The natural bridge and beloved I.V. landmark commonly known as the Goleta Beach Arch mysteriously disappeared last week, and everyone wants to know why. The naturally formed rock crossing stretched roughly 25 feet from a UCSB parking lot to the sand. Due to the absence of rock debris where the arch used to be – the entire arch had vanished – concerned beachgoers were skeptical that the arch collapsed due to natural causes. Both UCSB and County Parks denied destroying it, though a park worker reportedly spoke to others of a crack in the arch about a month ago.
