From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Darwin's Arch, 2006

Darwin's Arch was a natural rock arch on the southeast of Darwin Island on the Galapagos Islands in the Pacific Ocean. The arch sat on a rocky plateau, nicknamed "the theatre".[1][2]

The arch collapsed because of natural erosion on May 17, 2021, leaving two freestanding pillars.[3][4]
