The physically-challenged people would shortly get an opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the river-mouth up close from the Munambam-Muziris beach. The ramp, which is 19 meters long and 2 meters wide, would be inaugurated in the near future and would help the disabled to reach the one of the quaint spots in the district.
Before the project was launched, a ‘Mind Craft’ programme involving 30 persons, including people’s representatives, was organized in a bid to find ways and means to develop the beach. One of the suggestions that was raised in the programme was to build a ramp for the benefit of the physically-challenged people.
Ideal for kite flying, the beach also has many village homestays nearby.
