A beach for all

Albufeira’s Galé Oeste beach received the “accessible beach for all” award on August 10 in recognition of the fact that its infrastructures are suitable for people with limited mobility.

A flag to mark the award was hoisted on the same day in the presence of local dignitaries and representatives of the beach’s concession.

The beach infrastructure includes more parking spaces, improved pedestrian accesses, a ramp leading people onto the beach, wheelchair friendly toilet facilities and first aid centre.
