Handiplage, accessible beaches in France
Approved by the Tourisme & Handicap association, the Handiplage association contributes to the development of the accessibility of French beaches and outdoor recreations centres.
More than one hundred coastal cities in 43 French départements provide special equipment. Adapted services are proposed on the beaches such as the tiralo (amphibious wheelchair) or the hippocampe (aquatic whellchair). Trained staff share their expertise of managing disabled people, helping them take the plunge.
