Summer is well and truly here, and while Croatia’s beaches are a dream for many, they can be quite difficult to navigate for people with limited mobility. 

Due to jagged coastlines, uneven pebbles, and rather awkward points of entry, everything that makes Croatia’s beaches a wonder can also be a nightmare. But that has changed thanks to the City of Split, which has installed a lift for people with disabilities and limited mobility to facilitate swimming this summer! 

“This year, the city of Split has installed a lift on the beach in Bene, which enables easier entry into the sea for people with disabilities and people with limited mobility. The new elevator is from 2019 and is ready to use on the beach during the summer swimming season. 

Along with Žnjan, Bene beach is the second beach in Split with a modernized elevator and other facilities necessary for easier entry into the sea for people with disabilities.

Aqualifter is an automated device that safely allows independent entry and exit from the water without the intervention of outsiders. It is made of stainless steel and is equipped with a remote control radio for maneuvering with minimal effort and maximum user safety,” said the City of Split.

You can see the new lift in action below:

“We hope that enjoying swimming and summer days for people with disabilities will be beneficial for health, as well as for rest!” said the City of Split. 

Bene beach is a favorite Split swimming spot located on Marjan hill. With a restaurant, sports activities, and dense pine forest, Bene becomes a popular summer gathering place for locals and tourists alike!
