Beaches in Paphos are set to become more accessible for people with disabilities after the region’s tourism board Etap announced the purchase of new equipment.

Three floating wheelchairs, which will be placed on beaches in Pomos, Argaka, and Timi, were received by the three village’s mukhtars on Thursday.

Additionally, ramps and other accessibility infrastructure is being constructed on the beaches of Timi and Pomos, with work on both beaches set to be completed in October.

Similar work in Argaka is due to be completed next year.

Etap said accessibility “has been placed high on our priotities in recent years”.

They also thanked the deputy ministry of tourism for its financial support for the drive.
