    Hello,

    Does anyone have some suggestions for wheelchair accessible beaches in Tenerife, Spain?

    I heard the island is pretty accessible, but not sure which beaches I should prioritize if I use a power wheelchair…

    @mr_tiesto: I just came back from Tenerife. The best beach option for power wheelchair users definitely is the completely wheelchair-accessible beach ‘Playa de Las Vistas’ in Los Cristianos. It features an access ramp, accessible restrooms, a large wooden area exclusively for people with disabilities with sun umbrellas and sun beds, beach wheelchairs that float in the water, accessible showers, a transfer lift and helpful staff. This service is offered for free (except for sun umbrellas & beach beds).

    Hope this helps ?!

    I’ve recently been to Tenerife and I’m refloating this thread to add a chart with all the current accessible beaches in the island updated in 2022. The chart is in Spanish, but the icons are quite self-explanatory. The columns on the chart are: City, Beach, Parking for disabled people, Access to the beach by ramp, Accessible showers, Accessible restrooms/changing rooms, Boardwalks, Rest area (usually a wooden area a few meter from the sea), Beach wheelchair that floats in the water, Beach crutches, Availability of staff to assist you get to the water, Beach type.

    As you can see, there are many options. The south of the island has great weather all year round and is specially accessible, so I’d say it’s a great destination if you want a relaxing vacation.
