Disabled Access and Facilities
Access to the beach is limited to a steep concrete ramp by the windsurf club. Access elsewhere is made extremely difficult due to shifting sand and pebbles. The sand is very fine and may cause damage to your wheelchair. We therefore recommend using our beach wheelchairs which can be borrowed for a small deposit. There is no charge for this, just a deposit of £20 which is fully refunded when the wheelchair is returned.
These beach wheelchairs are popular and it is advisable to book in advance to avoid disappointment. To make a booking, please contact the estate office on 01243 514143 (Monday to Friday 9.00-16.00).
Each of our three toilet blocks has an accessible toilet which can be accessed with a RADAR key. Keys are available from the kiosks, office, cafe and lifeguard tower, when open.
To assist our less able visitors to enjoy the beach, we have two Sandcruiser (adult) and a Sandpiper (child) beach wheelchairs, two were very kindly donated to us for our visitors' use and the third one we provided ourselves.
- Large balloon tyres for beach access.
- Front castor wheels which allow a full 360° turn.
- 48cm seat height, with raising arm rests to make transferring safe and easy.
- Removable and adjustable leg rests for maximum comfort.
