People experiencing mobility issues can now have full access to the beaches and the beautiful Pacific Ocean that are trademarks of Southern California.

Beach wheelchairs are available at select beaches in Los Angeles County from Malibu to San Pedro free of charge and on a first-come, first-served basis during the day.

For individuals with mobility issues, enjoying California’s many beaches can be a major challenge, especially when traversing the uneven and sandy terrain. That’s why beach wheelchairs come equipped with wheels that are wide enough to roll across the sand without sinking. While beach wheelchairs usually require an individual to push them, select beach locations offer motorized chairs, also free of charge.

With beach wheelchairs now everybody can revel in the natural beauty of California, blue waves, sandy terrain, and all.
