    The Natural Bridge has a lot of coral which has strengthened the bridge for many years hence the beach adjacent to the bridge is also called the dead coral beach. Starfish, crabs, sea urchins, sometimes small octopuses, and sea cucumbers can be found in the shallow water on large old rocks. The beach is not suitable for swimming due to the presence of corals but trekking can be done.
