The natural Mangamaripeta arch, which is a nature-made work of art, is one of the highlights of the Mangamaripeta Beach in Visakhapatnam. This arch was formed over the last 6000 years or more by marine geological activity and erosion.
Mangamaripeta rocks from the Eastern Ghats, which date back 800 to 1,600 million years, make up the arch.You can walk on this arch as the waves crash against it, then return to try again. Geologists have urged the government to protect the arch, which is at risk of being damaged due to high tourist traffic.
