The natural bridge Καμάρα του Κόρακα (Cora's Arch) is a spectacular sight. The erosion of the cliff face by the waves caused the formation, but after thousands of years it has become so thin that a collapse by the ongoing erosion becomes quite probable. The fragility which makes the bridge so spectacular will also be its demise.

The bridge is popular with locals and tourists, and used as a setting for marriages. It has become an important source of income for the town Ayia Napa, and they are of course not happy about a dreading collapse and are looking for means to stabilize the bridge. However, do not attempt to walk across the bridge for your own safety, it is fenced off for a good reason.

For some reason the site is also listed as The Blue Lagoon, despite the fact that there is no blue lagoon.
