The La Jolla Half Marathon and Shores 5K is one of America's most picturesque and beautiful point-to-point races.
San Diego's beaches are more welcoming for travelers with disabilities and others with limited mobility looking for an exhilarating holiday.
The beach is a way of life for many San Diegans and those who visit it. It offers endless views, ocean breezes and the chance to take in all that Southern California offers. And now the beach is even more accessible for travelers with disabilities and others with limited mobility due to the availability of special equipment. Through the efforts of the City of San Diego, Port of San Diego, local residents and council members, there are now a variety of manual, powered and floating beach chairs plus sand access mats available at various beaches throughout San Diego County.
The power beach chairs are a hybrid of the common power wheelchair used on streets and dune buggies that are designed to navigate the deserts. They are comfortable, sturdy and don't require someone to help get you through the sand. The manual chairs do require you bring a friend to help you navigate through the soft sand.
You can find the manual and powered chairs at Ocean Beach, Mission Beach, Coronado Beach, Silver Strand State Beach, Imperial Beach, La Jolla Shores and Oceanside Harbor Beach. The beach chairs are available free of charge and reservations can be made by calling the numbers below.
Two floating beach chairs are available at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas. The chairs are available at no charge on a first-come, first-served basis at the lifeguard tower, 7 days a week from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. For questions, call 760.633.2740.
Select beaches offer sand access mats to provide an easier pathway to access the beach. Large spikes hold the mats in place and sand is swept off the mats daily.
With the many considerations available for people with mobility disabilities, San Diego is the perfect destination to access the great outdoors. Plan a visit today and experience San Diego's wheelchair accessible beaches for yourself!
