The beach is not just for children. Everybody who loves the sun, the waves, sand castles, little fish, the sea breeze and crystalline waters will enjoy it every bit as much as the little ones. And that includes the elderly as well as people with a temporary or permanent disability. That’s why, in the municipality of Santa Eulària des Riu, we propose that no beach-lover should be kept away from the water’s edge.
The beach of Santa Eulària des Riu was the first in the Balearic Islands to obtain the universal access management certificate (Spanish Standard UNE 170001-2), an important step in the development of our municipal accessibility policy. Our aim is to extend the enjoyment of our amenities to residents and visitors with any type of physical handicap or reduced mobility. Our beaches with an accessibility flag in Ibiza are concrete examples of our commitment to facilitate access for all. This goal is also evidenced by the Santa Eulària Council’s inclusion in the Spanish Network of Accessible Tourism STABLE NETWORK as a proud signatory of its Manifesto of Accessible Tourism.
Santa Eulària des Riu: beaches with accessibility flags
The municipality of Santa Eulària des Riu currently has two beaches that fly the accessibility flag: Cala Llonga and the town beach of Santa Eulària des Riu. In both cases, residents and visitors who are handicapped or have reduced mobility can enjoy the full beach experience thanks to the infrastructure and services we have put in place there. If this is your case, or if you are traveling with a friend or family member with reduced mobility, take note of the facilities available at these beaches in our municipality. And don’t forget to pack your bathing suit…
