Beach Wheelchairs in Pembrokeshire

Beach wheelchair at Saundersfoot

Pembrokeshire County Council is committed to improving its facilities so as to make all our services more accessible to disabled people.  As part of this commitment beach wheelchairs were introduced to Pembrokeshire in 2006 in a joint initiative between the Pembrokeshire Access Group and the County Council.   

These all terrain wheelchairs are extensively used by visitors and local people who had previously found it difficult to access our wonderful beaches.  They are also used by local schools for outings to the beach, farm trips and so on.

The two original beach wheelchairs which are located at Saundersfoot Habour have now been suplemented by additional chairs specially designed for children provided by P.O.P.S.Y (Parents of Partially Sighted and Blind Yougsters).  The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority (PCNPA) has also provided more beach wheelchairs at various locations around the County. (see below)

 A small returnable deposite together with a £3 fee per session to cover maintenence is all that is required to hire beach wheelchair and a session can last from half an hour to half a day. (the fee is the same)

They are available for hire at a number of outlets around the County enabling people to gain access to some of our finest beaches.
