No longer any need to make your way to a bar that has wifi, or be chained to your hotel. You can now head down to the beach with your mobile device (mobile phone or tablet) and hey presto! You’re online!
The scheme, currently available on the Levante beach and launched by the council under their ‘accessible beaches’ policy, will soon be rolled out to the Poniente too.
Users will need to log on to the service with a password which will change daily. You will then be granted free access to the world wide web, right from your beach sunlounger. Woo!
The ‘accessible beach’ scheme provides easy access points to the beach for disabled visitors. For full details of what services are available and how to register, this fantastically clear and informative pdf document explains the scheme fully.
In a nutshell, as well as providing easy-access ramps and an assisted swimming service, there are also specially adapted bathrooms, shaded zones and changing areas.
