Beach Wheelchairs

An all-terrain beach wheelchair is available at Barry Island, giving more visitors the chance to get on to the sand at Whitmore Bay.


Wheelchair access on beach

The beach wheelchair was provided by the Vale-based Intersensory Club and can be pushed across sand without sinking, thanks to the wide wheels and unique design.


The Beach wheelchair is available for loan and free to use.


Users just need to show one form of photo ID such as a passport or driving licence, or two proofs of name and address such as a utility bill and a bank statement.


The beach wheelchair can be collected from the new ‘Changing Places’ facility situated behind Marco’s on the Western promenade. Please call ahead to reserve your beach wheelchaire before you arrive as it is very popular and in high demand.
