The Gap and Natural Bridge, Albany

(4.6/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
Standing atop The Gap and Natural Bridge is a humbling experience: The rocks are the same as those found in Antarctica, meaning that you are standing at the former juncture of two continents. It is an easy stroll on the 300 m (980 ft) flat path from the parking area to watch the waves, rock formations, and rugged coastline from the sheer cliff. Bring a waterproof jacket if windy or rainy. Keep an eye out for whales, which you can often see from the cliffs, especially during winter. Put The Gap and Natural Bridge on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Albany vacation builder.
