Beach Wheelchairs for Hire





So many of us enjoy the pleasure of sitting on the beach and paddling in the sea.

For wheelchair users this is often denied as you struggle to move through sand and stones - even with a helping hand!

More resorts are addressing this problem with improved access, slopes, wheelchair friendly beach huts and more recently beach wheelchairs.

They are often hired by the day - sometimes free of charge or for a nominal fee.  They may be provided by local councils or local disability groups.

There is usually a deposit that will be given back on the safe return of the beach wheelchair.

So, how do you find one?

If you are on holiday at the moment the local Tourist Information should be able to let you know about wheelchair accessible beaches and the opportunities to hire a wheelchair in the area.

With your help we hope to create an awesome resource of accessible beach locations with disabled facilities.
