Holidays in Cyprus can be a great option for people with disabilities. In the past few years, Cyprus has introduced new disabled-friendly services and accessibility planning to cater to the needs of visitors with disabilities.

With a little planning and some patience, you can enjoy a fantastic day in one of the following beaches!

The following 36 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 34 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.
