Disabled facilities on beaches
Nearly 76 beaches in the Region of Valencia offer the necessary infrastructure to be used and enjoyed by people with reduced mobility.
Special facilities include reserved parking areas, access by means of ramps, walkways of a special width, enclosed shaded areas, cloakrooms and adapted services such as amphibian chairs and crutches. These crutches have special floating buoys to hold them up. The amphibian chairs and crutches allow disabled people to get right into the sea and enjoy themselves whereas previously they may have been unable to.
The final objective of this initiative is that resorts in the Region of Valencia have the proper facilities and assisting personnel on their beaches to provide the whole population with access to beaches without any discrimination
The Valencia Region coastline is one of the very few all over the world with facilities and services adapted for any kind of disability or mobility problems which affect 9% of the population, and which in Europe alone represents over 37 million people.
