Paraplegics call for better beach access in Ayia Napa

The Paraplegic Association has called for accessible sanitary facilities and special wheelchairs that will allow disabled people to use beaches across Ayia Napa.

In a letter to mayor Yiannis Karousos they said it is “necessary and responsible” that income the municipality receives from the beds and umbrellas they offer is returned to swimmers “through investment in infrastructure that improves the quality of service.”

Some of the recommendations include “accessible and comfortable sanitary facilities, shower, bathroom, parking” and moveable ramps on the sea that lead to the water as well as special wheelchairs allowing them to enter the water like the one they donated to Vathia Gonia beach in Ayia Napa.

Should the council take such a decision, this would be exemplary, setting a standard that could motivate other municipalities to follow suit.
