Arches; Channel Islands; Channel Islands National Park; Differential Erosion; Erosion Features; Geomorphology; Littoral Erosion; Resistant Rock; Sea Stacks; Shore Features; Shore Features; Shorelines; Wave Erosion; Wave Erosion; WavesOcean waves have eroded the perimeter of the island, creating steep sea cliffs towering hundreds of feet in height and exposing the volcanic origins of air pockets, lava tubes, and sea caves. At the east end of Anacapa a natural bridge has formed in the ocean. Forty-foot high Arch Rock is a trademark of Anacapa and Channel Islands National Park.
