Muizenberg Beach accessible to differently-abled people

Muizenberg Beach has become more accessible for differently-abled people. The City of Cape Town’s Recreation and Parks Department, in collaboration with the Western Cape’s Health Department have installed an access mat which allows those in wheelchairs and with walking aids to still enjoy the sandy beach.

Donated by the Western Cape Government Health’s ‘WoW’ programme (Western Cape on Wellness), the Mobi-Mat is a light and environmentally friendly walkway.

‘This is the launch of the first-ever Beach Access Mat in the province. Accordingly, it is expected that the installation of the Mobi-Mat would facilitate the empowerment and social inclusiveness of persons with mobility impairments through their participation in coastal recreation and leisure activities,’ said Western Cape Provincial Minister of Health, Dr Nomafrench Mbombo.
