Ramped access to beach and accessible toilets
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Walking Aid, Wheelchair
2 accessible toilets, ramp to beach, there are apparently sand chairs to hire but we didn't use them, parking is limited.
Transport & Parking
We parked on the main shopping street where there is time limited on street parking but the time limit doesn't apply to blue badge holders. The car park we saw, which is near the shops, only had 1 blue badge space and the car park was more or less full on a school day.
Ramp to the beach, had no problems with the gradient. I'd seen online and the lady at the museum we visited mentioned that they have sand chairs at the beach but I didn't see any obvious signs and we weren't bothered enough about hiring one to go looking, it could be a seasonal thing.
There were 2 accessible toilets next to the car park, with steps at one end and a ramp at the other. The doors are manual.There was a hand rail at the back of toilet as well as to the sides, there was enough space for Dad's wheelchair down one side. The door lock is an electronic one operated by a button. The sink is an automated one and Dad didn't get on with it, he ended up washing his hands twice and wasn't able to get as far as the dryer because it restarted itself, there were no paper towels. The other toilets are unisex cubicles with urinals and extra ladies' toilets in separate rooms.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
A sign is needed by the toilets pointing out that there is a ramp side and a step side because you can't see both ends at the same time and Dad wanted to go the wrong way. There is a dog wash (with a fee), there are showers but I don't know if they're accessible. We will probably visit this beach again.
