Pembrokeshire Beach Wheelchairs

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority purchased the beach wheelchairs after the successful trial by the Pembrokeshire Access Group on Saundersfoot Beach.

They are now available to hire from a number of locations to help people gain access to Pembrokeshire's sandy beaches.

Some operators charge up to £5 per session others ask for donations to a charity or upkeep of wheelchair.
