Sea stack are magnificent looking vertical rock formations which are formed naturally and stand in the sea. These sea stacks are formed by water and wind and their formation process begins when the sea tends to create different sized cracks in the headland. Due to this collapse is caused at the later stages and thus freestanding sea stacks are formed.
But not all sea stacks are as strong or are very tall. Some tend to collapse early while some stay on for years.
