One of Hermanus’ great assets stands today sadly forlorn, neglected and apparently abandoned. A major eyesore with broken buildings, piles of building rubbish and blown over trees. That is the current state of De Mond Caravan Park at the eastern end of Voëlklip.
Many coastal towns in our country have a campsite where those who cannot afford a hotel, guesthouse or B&B accommodation, or those who simply enjoy the camping and caravanning lifestyle, can enjoy a family holiday by the sea. The location is ideal and the basic infrastructure was there. Would it not be worth the municipality’s while to consider cleaning it up and providing the necessary facilities that will bring an income and that everyone can enjoy?
Let’s share this lovely place with people from all walks of life.
