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.
