On the beach - accessible beach
We continue our summer focus by looking at facilities on the beach including moveable walkways, accessible beach huts and Changing Places toilets.
After a focus on beach wheelchairs we are looking to make more things on the beach accessible now there are:
Mobi-mats - to help wheelchair users move easily from the promenade onto the sand and closer to the sea, it creates an easier path for wheelchair users as they may struggle to walk on the beach. These are available between Easter and September.
Accessible beach huts - These chalets have space for up to four wheelchairs and the space has been designed to be flexible. For large groups, two huts can be converted into one large space with the huts available to hire by individuals or disability groups.
Changing Places toilets - As part of the Boscombe beach area’s accessible makeover the beach also has a Changing Places toilet with an overhead hoist and changing bed.
