What does accessible tourism mean?

Accessible tourism represents the set of services and infrastructure designed to ensure that everyone, including visitors with disabilities or special needs, can fully enjoy the travel experience. This concept is based on creating barrier-free environments, activities, and facilities so that anyone can explore new destinations without limitations.

Services that ensure beach accessibility

Essential services that make beaches accessible to people with disabilities include:
  • Accessible walkways and paths: roads and walkways designed to provide easy access to the beach and sea for people in wheelchairs or with reduced mobility.
  • Job chairs: special chairs designed for water access, equipped with large yellow wheels that easily cope with both sand and sea.
  • Disabled-friendly toilet facilities.
  • Trained staff to assist visitors with disabilities, ensuring support and safety while on the beach.
  • Shade and rest areas: dedicated spaces where you can rest and protect yourself from the sun, accessible and comfortable.

Beaches with facilities for the disabled

There are many beaches equipped to accommodate visitors with disabilities. These include, in particular, the Bath Julia no. 85, for its pioneering role in the field: it was Europe's first fully accessible and environmentally sustainable beach. This bathing establishment is part of the SpiaggialiberAtutti project, which was created with the aim of making the beach and sea accessible to all, promoting environmentally sustainable and accessible tourism and thus ensuring an inclusive vacation for all. Member establishments offer a wide range of services, including facilitated access, Job chairs for bathing, equipped toilets and tactile paths for the blind.

The LiberAll Beach Project

The Spiaggia LiberAtutti project represents a pioneering initiative in the Italian accessible tourism scene, launched with the intention of promoting total inclusion at beach resorts. Created through a collaboration between the municipality of Riccione, voluntary associations and the private sector, this initiative aims to make the beach a place without barriers, where people with disabilities can enjoy the sea and the beach with the same freedom and safety as anyone else. For this to be possible, accessibility must be total with walkways that reach to the shoreline, specialized equipment such as Job chairs and special mats to facilitate movement on the sand, accessible shaded areas, and also support and assistance from qualified staff.
