Surf chairs have been introduced at beaches on Bermuda for disabled visitors. These are plastic wheelchairs that can be pushed across sand and into the water. They are available from lifeguards at Horseshoe Bay and John Smith's Bay. Bermuda Tourism (0171-734 8813) can provide an information sheet called "Facilities for the Physically Challenged".
The lowest normal fare on Swissair from London City airport to Zurich is pounds 174, but you do not have to pay a whole lot more to fly from the Docklands airport to the Far East. Swissair is offloading excess capacity to the Far East, with fares to Peking, Hong Kong and Singapore cut to pounds 455, including tax, through agents such as Quest Worldwide (0181-547 3322). You can also fly from Heathrow or Manchester to Zurich, where you transfer to the intercontinental leg. You must depart before the end of August and return within a month.
