Candolim Beach Hosts Wheelchair Accessible Beach Festival #BeachFest2017

Wheelchair-bound people will also get to relish the joy of sand, sun and floating in the sea. A first-of-its-kind event began today on Candolim beach in North Goa. During this 10-day event, the entire stretch of Candolim beach is converted into an accessible beach by putting together safety mechanisms. This initiative will give wheelchair ridden travellers to enjoy water sports and other beach activities like wheelchair cricket, sand castle competitions, wheelchair dancing along with their family members. Every swimmer will be accompanied by four lifeguards – Two offshore and two on jet-skii.

This is a fantastic initiative to make travelling inclusive for all.
