Larnaca: Disabled Needs
White washed houses, palm-trees and sandy beaches
From the minute you fly into Laranaca Airport you will feel at ease, as it is furnished with ramps, toilets and parking facilities for disabled travellers. There are many resorts, hotels and villas that have comprehensive disabled facilities, especially on Larnaca’s seafront. However, each hotel has different amenities, so it is advisable to ring the hotel direct in advance to find out whether they have the appropriate facilities for your disability. After unpacking in your accessible room, sit out on the seafront promenade which has plenty of space to park your wheelchair or walking frame. All the beaches in Larnaca, apart from Kastella Beach, have disabled access, which include ramps, disabled changing facilities and toilets. Cyprus also participates in the blue badge disability scheme, so disabled drivers and passengers will have priority parking spaces in the area. Larnaca is still becoming wheelchair friendly, with many of the older tourist sights still only partially accessible for disabled tourists, so for these excursions it is advisable to have an able person assisting you. Larnaca would be a relaxing, stimulating and inspiring destination for all disabled holidaymakers.
