(businesspress24) - Mobility issues need not deny anyone from the pleasures of soaking up the sunshine, relaxing on soft golden sands or capturing photogenic sunsets on a balmy summer evening. The Canary Islands, of which there are seven to choose from, are perfectly accessible for travellers who are disabled. Holidays here will see you experiencing mountain peaks, glistening shores and much more


Famous for being home to the highest mountain in Spain, Tenerife is the perfect destination for anyone who is disabled. Holidays on this island can be based in a number of hotels that make accessibility a priority.

Arona has some beautiful beaches that all offer adapted facilities and obstacle-free amenities, while the capital of Tenerife, Santa Cruz, is proud to be home to the first museum on the island that

Climbing towering peaks and visiting out-of-the-way natural beauties can be particularly tough if you have mobility issues, but Mount Teide, a volcano complete with craters, vents and several other geological features, is very accessible for anyone who is disabled.

The beaches on Lanzarote have excellent accessibility for wheelchair users, so no one needs to worry about getting over the sand. Wooden walkways have been constructed, and you can even rent wheelchairs that are suited to beach use. Toilets have been designed with limited accessibility in mind, and there are lowered showers if you need to rinse off after a long day of sunbathing. Low curbs and a wide tarmac path along the promenade lead you to the many excellent bars and restaurants, too.

Lanzarote Village

This beautiful complex is ideally situated close to the town of Puerto del Carmen and the beaches, and its rooms have been built with wheelchair access in mind. Limited mobility doesn

With only a little planning and the help of an experienced tour operator, these islands open their doors to anyone with limited mobility who is looking for a sunshine-filled getaway. So, what are you waiting for?
