There are currently 47 beaches for people with wheelchair disabilities in Cyprus which have been recorded by the Cypriot Tourism Organisation. These 47 beaches are located in various towns in Cyprus in order to provide assistance. Out of the 47 beaches, 26 of them have full accessibility towards the sea, while the other 21 are partly accessible.
The beaches with full accessibility have access towards the sea with the use of wooden ramps of plastic pathways which allow the wheelchair user to move until the sea, as well as toilet facilities and parking areas.
It should also be noted that 5 of these beaches have an innovative maritime access system called Seatrac. The system is made up of a Solar Tower which sets a special seat in motion which is applied onto a rail, transporting the user to a depth of about 60 cm in the water.
In addition many of the beaches have a special amphibious wheelchair suitable for movement at the beach and access to the sea, as it floats called a floating wheelchair.
