Wheelchair-Accessible Beaches in Florida

Can you push a wheelchair on the beach? You can in a wheelchair equipped with beach wheelchair tires, and there are several wheelchair-accessible beaches in Florida that provide beach mats to let even standard wheelchairs get out across the sand with ease. Whether you’re a Florida resident searching “wheelchair-accessible beaches near me,” or you’re a tourist looking for wheelchair-accessible beaches to visit during a trip to Florida, you’ll find plenty of gorgeous places to have your day in the sun! Here, Freedom Motors USA adds to our ever-expanding lifestyle guide to wheelchair-accessible destinations with a list of oceanside hot spots in Florida that are beach wheelchair-friendly. 


Daytona Beach

World-famous and now accessible for wheelchair users, Daytona Beach’s hard-packed sand makes using a beach wheelchair feel effortless. You can also rent power beach wheelchairs from Beach Mobility Rentals, who make their chairs available for pickup at Flagler Avenue, Dunlawton Avenue, Beach Headquarters, and Cardinal Avenue lifeguard stations.

Pensacola Beaches

Loved for their stunning white sand and emerald waters, Pensacola Beach made a significant effort to make their beaches wheelchair-accessible with a recent installation of five non-slip Mobi-Mats, which can be navigated by beach wheelchair tires or standard wheels and tires. The Mobi-Mats were installed at some of Pensacola’s most popular beaches, including Casino Beach, Park West, two areas of Quietwater Beach, and the beach in front of the Pensacola Beach Boardwalk. 

If you’re looking to rent a beach wheelchair in Pensacola so you can explore beyond the Mobi-Mat destinations, they’re available at Johnson Beach, Opal Beach, and Langdon Beach. 

Miami Beach

One of the most iconic beaches in the United States is Miami Beach, and wheelchair users are glad to find it’s also one of the most accessible. Beach wheelchairs are available on a first-come, first-serve basis throughout the year, and Miami Beach even offers free powered beach wheelchairs! You can contact the City of Miami Beach to explore Mobi-Mat locations, as well.

Fernandina Beach 

Fernandina Beach is Florida’s second-oldest city and first resort area. A beach walkover has been constructed at the Main Beach with an accessible viewing area that’s linked to an accessible beach path. Additional walkovers at North Park and Seaside Park Beaches are planned for the future.

Hollywood Beach

Conveniently set between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood Beach was Florida’s very first to install a wheelchair beach mat. You’ll now find mats at Tyler, New York, Johnson, Connecticut, Oregon, Harrison, and Carolina streets, as well as Keating Park at Magnolia Terrace. You can also find beach wheelchairs available to rent from Miami-Dade County Park’s Recreation and Open Spaces Department.

Enjoying the Beach During COVID-19 

As part of our efforts to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we’ve advised employees to follow guidance from public health authorities on hygiene and personal travel. We encourage people across Los Angeles, CA, Orlando, FL, and Dallas, TX to do the same when planning their visit to their state’s beautiful beaches.
