Accessible Beaches in Malta

Sun, sea, relaxation, fun. Summer is the most carefree season of the year, and vacations are the right time to recharge after a year of work. The accessibility of tourist attractions is an important issue. Ensuring that even the less fortunate can fully experience a 360-degree travel experience is a duty of every country.

Support for people with disabilities in Malta starts at the airport, which offers dedicated assistance services. There are also specialized taxi and van services for transporting disabled individuals throughout the archipelago.

As for accommodation, Malta offers numerous facilities and solutions for any type of need, with equipped rooms and dedicated services for disabled people and their friends and families.

Malta has always been committed to making small and large attractions accessible to people with disabilities. This is why the accessibility of beaches in Malta and Gozo has been improved, with the construction of new walkways and access ramps that allow reaching some of the main beaches of the archipelago directly from the road, such as Mellieha Bay. Additionally, special lifts have been installed to enable people with disabilities to move easily from the road to the beach. Finally, the ten main beach establishments in Malta have been equipped with special beach wheelchairs, which can be used to enter the water as well.
