Five Islands loses its exquisite landmark ‘The Eye’

‘The Eye’ was exquisite landmark of Five Islands, Nova Scotia. No one knows the exact age of the rock formation that drew countless tourists to the Fundy shore, but many say that the landmark has been the Bay of Fundy’s major attraction from thousands of years. Now, ‘The Eye’ has vanished.

The landmark is actually Five Islands’ naturally formed arch, which is carved in the basalt and sandstone of Long Island. ‘The Eye’ has attracted tourists from different regions of the globe for many years, but now as its gone, there are chances that the province will see a drop in tourists.

While talking about the arch, Harold Nesbitt, a local resident, said the collapse of ‘The Eye’ was surprising. According to Nesbitt, he noticed in the morning that the landmark was not there at its place. Nesbitt’s home looks out over the basin and Long Island.

Nesbitt said it was always amazing to see the natural beauty of the Bay of Fundy, but ‘The Eye’ was the most amazing thing of the region.

Hikers usually visit the Bay of Fundy to see the landmark. Many brave hikers visited the landmark to venture across the mud flats at low tide. Kayakers loved to visit ‘The Eye’ at high tide to paddle under the arch.

The landmark was always a part of online travel and adventure blogs. According to Nesbitt, his Motorcycle Tour Guide of Nova Scotia and Atlantic Canada has the images of the beautiful landmark.
