Protecting dune vegitation

The vegetated dunes between Kings Beach and the walkways passing the swimming pools have been fenced off to protect the delicate dune vegetation.  In the past people have just been walking over the dunes willy-nilly without any consideration for the vegetation.  The problem is that once the vegetation disappears the dune starts "moving" and the sand blows onto the walkways, lawns and the swimming pools. 


  1. Similar to what we do around our beaches in Sydney.

  2. Nice to see the reveg. People just don't get it. Ah, a great place for an interpretive sign.

  3. At least they are being protected now. We have similar problems here in Cape Town too.
