Mobi-Mat at Main Beach

The City of Fernandina Beach has a Mobi-Mat semi-permanently installed at the Main Beach boardwalk access ramp.  This environmentally-friendly ADA-compliant matting provides safe and easy access for wheelchairs, strollers, and walkers to maneuver on the beach sand.  The matting is made completely from recycled plastic bottles.

Beach Wheelchairs

The Parks & Recreation Department has three (3) upright beach wheelchairs and one (1) Mobi floating beach wheelchair available for reservations at the Atlantic Recreation Center for individuals with disabilities.  A refundable security deposit of $100 per chair, paid with a current and valid major credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover), and driver's license are required.  Rental fees are:  $30 per chair for up to 1 week City residents, $38 Non-City.  Please call the Atlantic Recreation Center at 904-310-3350 for availability and reservations.

  • Beach wheelchairs may be reserved for up to 7 consecutive days.  Reservations may be made up to 1 year in advance.
  • We offer an optional delivery and pick-up service for our beach wheelchairs to locations in the City of Fernandina Beach limits.  Delivery/pick-up fee is $25.
  • Mobi-chair:  Although this wheelchair floats, it is not a boat.  The sitting position is stable, and a person will not slip out of the chair under normal conditions of use.  However, for safety reasons, a life jacket is required for non-swimmers.  This chair is not recommended for use in bodies of water with strong currents or waves.
  • If any damages occur to a reserved beach wheelchair during use that exceed $100, then additional charges will be assessed beyond the security deposit.
