Recently returned from Tenerife. Both my husband and I were amazed at how accessible the whole resort is. They have made a point of making sure people with mobility issues can get out onto the sand, have easily accessible, clean toilet facilities and can navigate along the beautiful coast without fear of stair or impediments. Lots of ramps, elevators and access points for scooters/wheelchairs walkers and the like. Neither my husband or I have accessibility requiremenrs but noted the thought and care that went into planning this resort for people with mobility issues. We first noticed it because of the large number of handicap scooters that were being used by people on the Boardwalk. When we researched the history we learned that the south of Tenerife has been a popular holiday destination since the 1950’s and 60’s when two Swedish gentlemen, one suffering with Multiple Sclerosis and the other rheumatic arthritis, visited Tenerife in the hope that the warmer climate would improve their health. Impressed by the results, word soon spread through Northern Europe and tourists began visiting this sub-tropical island in droves.
But in addition to that, Tenerife is an amazing place to visit and we would go there again!
