The accessible swimming service on the beaches of Barcelona includes a series of equipment so that people with different types of dysfunctions can enjoy the beach.

The service has the following equipment

  • Amphibious chairs

  • Amphibious crutches
  • Accessible toilets
  • Adapted showers

In addition, the space has trained personnel to be able to provide all possible help to users.

Some of the users have motor problems, other cognitive problems but all can, with a little help, enjoy the water safely.
