Accessible Beaches Take Center Stage This Summer

Accessible Beaches Take Center Stage This Summer

As the allure of staycations and UK-based holidays grows this summer, the demand for wheelchair-friendly beach amenities, including accessible beach huts and beach wheelchairs, is on the rise.

The prospect of a seaside getaway can quickly turn daunting without a smooth slope or ramp leading down to the beach. Maneuvering a wheelchair across sand becomes a formidable task. To avoid this challenge, thorough research to identify accessible beaches with beach wheelchair hire facilities becomes crucial before embarking on the trip.

The design of beach wheelchairs, much like other mobility products, has evolved significantly in terms of both functionality and appearance. Modern beach wheelchairs boast a stylish aesthetic with bright balloon-shaped tires and contemporary striped chair fabrics. Highly portable and durable, these innovative wheelchairs have transformed the beach experience for individuals with disabilities, the elderly, or those recovering from illness or injury.

Some beach wheelchairs are even designed to float, providing users with seamless access to the sea. For instance, Water Wheels is a life-changing product that effortlessly glides over sand and can float on the water. Featuring visible floating armrests, puncture-resistant, and non-corrosive balloon flotation tires, Water Wheels prioritizes user comfort and convenience. The wheelchair’s breathable, mildew-resistant mesh seat dries quickly, and the entire product can be assembled and dismantled in less than a minute without the need for tools. The wheelchair folds flat for easy storage or transportation in a vehicle.

While the cost of these innovative floating wheelchairs starts at around £2250, renting one may be a more cost-effective option for occasional water activities. Imagine the impact if popular seaside resorts offered a fleet of Water Wheels for hire. This vision might not be too far off, as a new wave of customers, including local authorities, private sports clubs, and holiday resorts, show interest in trialing Water Wheels.
