Reopening of ‘Handiplage’ on Larvotto beach

handiplage larvotto

People with reduced mobility who are looking to have some fun at the beach in Monaco will once again have ease of access thanks to the ‘Handiplage’, which is now available at Larvotto.

For 18 years, the Soroptimist Club, in partnership with the Prince’s Government, has been offering people with reduced mobility and with disabilities the opportunity to enjoy the beach for free, seven days a week, from 10am to 5pm.

The service, which will be available until 3rd September, involves a team of handiplagists as well as tiralos – a floating wheelchair-like design – to provide support for swimming.

Up to three hours of free parking is also available for this group.

Access from the upper promenade is possible via adapted lifts, while access to the beach is facilitated by a gently sloping ramp.

People can contact the team in advance on 06 43 91 97 57 should they wish.
