Welcome to Alleppey - the first accessible beach in India
The beach in Alleppey in the Indian state of Kerala was equipped with everything necessary for people with disabilities. Braille signs, audiovisual assistive devices and a 50-meter ramp leading to the sea are set here. This is the first beach in India, where a barrier-free environment is created. New infrastructure was presented to residents on December 3, International Day of Persons with Disabilities, and now the government of Kerala plans to adapt other popular holiday destinations in the region to the needs of people with limited mobility.
“By January 2019, Kerala will be the first barrier-free tourist destination in India,” said P. Bala Kiran, head of the region’s tourism department. - "All 14 areas of the state implement their projects to create an accessible environment."
Note, earlier in another Indian state - Tamil Nadu, started creating an accessible environment for tourists with limited mobility in 7 temples and fortresses, historical heritage sites.
