Dubrovnik-Neretva Beaches More Accessible for People With Disabilities

May the 29th, 2022 - Three Dubrovnik-Neretva beaches are now more accessible to people with various forms of physical disabilities thanks to a new move within the wider MIMOSA project.

As Morski writes, three Dubrovnik-Neretva beaches have now finally been properly and safely equipped with lifts for people with disabilities. They were procured as part of the praiseworthy MIMOSA project.

From this summer season onwards, people with disabilities will be able to enter the sea on three more Dubrovnik-Neretva beaches more easily on the beaches in Orebic, Slano and in Molunat, which lies to the south of the city.

Lifters for people with disabilities have been set up in co-operation with local self-government units to facilitate access to the sea for people with disabilities and people with reduced mobility. The total value of the three lifters installed in the municipalities of Orebic, Konavle and in Zupa Dubrovacka stands at 300 thousand kuna.

The MIMOSA project is otherwise being implemented within the Interreg Italy-Croatia cross-border cooperation programme, and its main goal is to improve the quality, safety and environmental sustainability of coastal transport services by promoting multimodality and connecting multiple forms of transport within the programme area, but also raising the general level of awareness of both citizens and tourists when it comes to offering modern and more environmentally friendly solutions.

Italy aside, Dubrovnik-Neretva County has 369,735.00 euros at its disposal for the realisation of various MIMOSA project activities, and the project activities will be realised by the end of 2022.

As part of the project, a website for cycling tourism in Dubrovnik-Neretva County is being developed, and work is underway to arrange a cyclopoint (centre) in Popovici, which lies to the south of Dubrovnik, which will be equipped with equipment for cyclists.

In addition to all of the above, at nineteen different locations within the county, the installation of nineteen bike service sets and twenty new parking racks for bicycles is planned.

6 Beaches in Dubrovnik-Neretva County Perform Poorly in Quality Test

As Morski writes on the 3rd of July, 2019, according to the Program for the determination of sea quality at the seaside beaches of Dubrovnik-Neretva County for 2019, the Public Health Institute of Dubrovnik-Neretva County performed its third regular sea survey on 118 beaches during the period from the 17th to the 26th of June, 2019.

On 117 of Dubrovnik-Neretva County's beaches, the sea water corresponded to the requirements of the bathing water quality regulation (OG 73/08). However, during the third test, taken on June the 26th, 2019, pollution in the sea at Srebreno beach in Župa dubrovačka (Parish of Dubrovnik) was unfortunately found.

At Srebreno beach, located in Župa dubrovačka, additional samples of the sea water were taken on the 27th and the 28th of June, 2019. The test results have indicated the presence of short-term pollution. Similar sampling shall be repeated within seven days of contamination to check to see if the aforementioned short term pollution on that beach has halted.

Of the other 117 beaches in Dubrovnik-Neretva County, the sea at as many as 111 beaches has been rated as sea water of ​​outstanding quality. The sea water on the beaches of the Libertas Rixos Hotel in Dubrovnik, VK Cavtat in Konavle, Mlini in Župa dubrovačka and Uvala Luka in Trpanj was of good quality, while the sea water at the beaches of Šulić and Danče in the City of Dubrovnik was rated with a mere satisfactory rating.

Additional sea water sampling was carried out on the beaches of the island of Lokrum, White Rocks (Bijele Stijene), Danče, Lozica and at the beach belonging to Hotel Rixos Libertas in Dubrovnik. This process was carried out during the period from the 17th to the 22nd of June, 2019. All of the above mentioned beaches were of excellent quality.
