Accessible Beaches

Accessible Beaches

Rolling beach wheelchairs are available for free use at all Martin County guarded beach locations including Hobe Sound Beach, Stuart Beach and Jensen Beach. These light all-terrain chairs allow people with a wide variety of limitations to enjoy the beauty of our coastal areas. Lifeguards will assist residents and visitors, just ask at the guard towers. The chairs are light — made of polyvinyl chloride, or PVC — and have four air-filled balloon tires, making them easy to navigate through sand. And for the convenience of a day at the beach, each chair has its own umbrella and a pouch attached to the back, big enough to haul most beach essentials.
