One of the cities that stands out for not presenting architectural barriers is Tenerife. In recent years, intense work has been done to improve the facilities for people with disabilities, especially physical disabilities. From the airports in the north as well as in the south, they are fully equipped with lifts, ramps and parking spaces designed for their specific use.
What you can find in Tenerife?
If you are travelling to this beautiful island in the Atlantic Ocean, you can get the full list of accommodations through our Disabled Holiday website. Most, if not all, hotels offer specially adapted rooms that meet the requirements of extra wide doors and modified bathrooms.
Some hotels are on or very close to the beach. The beautiful beaches around the Tenerife coast have excellent sand access points and modern promenades. In the end, everything is designed to make life easier for people with mobility problems.
On the beaches of Las Vistas and Costa Adeje, a great deal of money has been invested to revolutionise the beach experience and remove barriers that previously did not allow such easy access. The "revolution" includes special crutches that are easier to use in sand and the new amphibious floating chair that can be moved to the sea, so that anyone can enjoy the warm water of the place.
For those who are not so fond of the beach, you can find many shops, restaurants, cafes, bars and malls, where maximum care has been taken to ensure that wheelchairs can be used. On the other hand, there is still a lot to be done and there are some older buildings that have not yet been refurbished.
As far as transport is concerned, there are also ample personalised taxis, which can be ordered via telephone contact or found at most of the stops in the main stations. If you are going to stay on the island and need any assistance service, don't forget to contact us. We are at your disposal.
