Subject: I want... no need... a holiday! Got any advice?

I really want to go on hoiday somewhere warm with a lovely beach. The only issue is I haven't been anywhere for 2 years since my osteoarthritis ruined my life. I suffer from severe back pain which means I have to sit on comfortable chairs all day long. I can't walk for more than 5-10 mins and there's no way I could get down on the floor to lie on a beach! I have trawled the internet looking for a suitable holiday. I don't care where I go, as long as the flight isn't too long. I need a hotel that's right on the beach, no steps, with cushions on every chair :-) Plus I want the beach to have sun loungers with those padded mattresses. Also the restaurant chairs need to be padded. Basically I'm asking the impossible but it has to be out there somewhere!! Has anyone been anywhere that sounds like this? I dont need wheelchair access or anything, just comfort. Plus a good mattress it also too much to ask I imagine!

Hi Louisa, why don't you check on some of the disability sites, think there are some dedicated to holidays. Just google disabled holidays. Did it for my mum and very successful.
