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.
