Styles of Beach Sun Shelters
Beach tents come in a few different styles, which vary according to size, ease of setup, and ease of storage. If you are looking to fit many people in your sun shelter, then you may want to consider a large beach cabana
, a large family tent, or a large beach gazebo. Dome tents, pop-up beach tents, and frame tents all provide a space that is smaller and designed with a single family in mind.
Pop-up Beach Shelters:
They are by far the easiest to set up, but are a little more difficult to take down. They are constructed so that it takes only seconds until you have a completely constructed tent on the beach. This beach sun tent is usually made of lightweight fiberglass poles and thus is not very heavy to transport or store.
Baby Beach Tent:
Its one type of pop up tent that provides your baby or small children a place of their own to play and enjoy while trying to cool off and relax. Look for a tent that provides the UV protection to meet your individual needs. However a baby beach tent should have a minimum UV protection factor of 50 or more.
Family Beach Tent:
Its much larger and is intended to hold three to four people comfortably. They have been constructed to provide a family with the space, privacy, and protection that a family would need while out in a large open public space.
Beach Canopies are even larger still, and can hold eight to 10 people. There is no privacy with beach canopy, and they are prone to damage under high winds. But they provide excellent shelter for your family and friends while on the beach.
If you are looking for privacy, then it is very important that you find a tent that will allow all four sides to be completely enclosed. Some beach sun tent comes with mesh windows to allow breeze through the beach cabanas to help protect you from getting too hot. Therefore it is important that the windows have zip-up coverings.
Storage can also be very useful in a shelter for the beach. If you need a place to store your keys, loose change, or wallet, and donât want to just through them on the ground next to everything else, then make sure your beach shelter has some pockets on the inside sides in order to hide and store your valuables
