ACCESSIBLE BEACHES FOR PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL ACCESS NEEDS

Celestyal Cruises

The Deputy Ministry of Tourism, within the framework of its efforts to upgrade Cyprus beaches, is an active supporter of issues related to accessibility. It has listed so far 52 beaches for people with special access needs, including 37 fully accessible and 15 partially accessible.

FULLY ACCESSIBLE BEACHES

The following 37 beaches have full access to the beach, as the wheelchair user is able to get from the beach into the sea moving on a wooden or plastic ramp. There is also availability of hygiene facilities and parking places for disabled persons.

It is worth mentioning that on 7 of these beaches there is an innovative system (Seatrac) that enables disabled people to have a full access to the sea. It is an automatic system powered by photovoltaic energy, consisting of a seat fixed in a rail that drives the disabled person into the sea at an approximate depth of 60cm. A number of 35 beaches have Floating Wheelchairs that can be easily moved on the sand and float in the water thanks to their floating armrests and wheels. Seatrac and Floating Wheelchairs are available for use by the public free of charge and relevant information may be obtained by the lifeguards on the beaches.
