July 13, 2018
There is no better way than spending quality time with your loved ones on a beach with beautiful waves touching your feet and the deep blue skies for company!
Kerala tourism is all set to make three major beaches in Kochi fully accessible by December 2018! Earlier, authorities had confirmed that all tourist locations across the state will be made accessible by 2020 as part of the Barrier Free Tourism Project.
More than Rs 44 lakh has been set aside to make Fort Kochi, Cherai and Munambam beaches disabled friendly. They will have wheelchair ramps, Braille signage, audio recordings and other facilities including accessible toilets.
These three beaches are the most sought after tourist spots in Ernakulam district. There are many disabled tourists who frequent these places every year.
An official from Ernakulam district administration said that other tourist hot spots like Durbar Hall Gallery, Ernakulam Boat Jetty, Marine Drive and Bhoothathankettu Dam will also be made accessible at the earliest. These will be included in the second phase of the project to make the district accessible to disabled people.
