WheelEEZ® Beach Wheelchair Conversion Kit makes beach days accessible
— original post by Simply Emma —
Going to the beach is something a lot of people take for granted. For wheelchair users, going to the beach is difficult. The simple fact that sand and wheelchairs just don’t go. Well, that used to be the case. Now, beach days are possible thanks to amazing beach wheelchairs. They are popping up more and more at beaches all over. Recently I received a WheelEEZ® beach wheelchair conversion kit and it’s been super exciting. Beach days are possible again and I couldn’t be happier about it. So who fancies joining us for a BBQ on the beach?
The conversion kit was gifted to me in return for an honest review, however, as always, all opinions are my own.
Beach Wheelchairs Make Beach Days Accessible
There are different types of beach wheelchairs available, both manual and powered depending on your preference and budget. Some beaches have the option to hire their own beach wheelchairs which is amazing. There are also beach wheelchairs that go fully into the water like the one I used in Barcelona.
Personally, I’ve always loved the beach. However, ever since I was young and became a full-time wheelchair user, it’s been off-limits to me. Whenever we went to the beach I would only be able to go so far until the sand stopped me going any further. Failing that we would sit in the car and try and enjoy the view from there. It just wasn’t the same.
I wanted to get involved in the fun, drip my toes in the sea, feel the sea breeze and enjoy time with my family. I also wanted that tousled beach hair look too. Ya’know? Haha. I didn’t want to miss out anymore especially the special moments with my nephew.

Having the WheelEEZ® beach wheelchair conversion kit is going to allow me to enjoy all those things so I don’t have to miss out anymore. Not only sandy beaches, but the conversion kit can also allow easy access over gravel pathways, woodland, tracks and trails.
We tried it out for the first time a few weeks ago at Longniddry Beach, East Lothian in Scotland. It was a beautiful day and we had a great day with my sister and nephew. The following photos were taken on that great day.
