Over recent years much work has been done all over Tenerife to improve facilities for disabled and physically challenged people. Both the north and south airports are fully-equipped with lifts, ramps and designated car park spaces.

Many of the hotels that come with a recommendation from Spain-Tenerife offer specially-adapted rooms which include extra wide doors and bathroom facilities which have been modified. For a full list of hotels endorsed by us click here.

Some are located on or close to beautiful beaches  dotted around the Tenerife coastline with modern promenades offering good access points onto the sand – all designed to make the experience as easy as possible for people with mobility issues.

And on Costa Adeje beaches, there has been major investment to revolutionise the beach experience. This includes specialised crutches which are easier to use in the sand and an ‘amphibious floating chair’ which can be wheeled into the ocean, allowing everyone to enjoy the warm waters here. 

Away from the beach, modern commercial centres, shops, restaurants, cafés and bars, have done what they can to adapt their premises for wheelchair use. However, please bear in mind, that many older, more traditional buildings have not yet completed renovations. 

As far as transport is concerned, large taxis which have been customised, can be ordered or found at most taxi ranks in major resorts.
