Your Guide To Buying a Beach Shelter

By #<Author:0x00007fc611ed0880>

    People are aware of the dangers of too much exposure to the sun, especially on hot summer days. When you go to the beach, you'll want some sort of shelter, both from the sun and wind, and a little privacy as well. A beach umbrella just doesn't do it...and pitching a tent might be a bit much. A beach shelter can be just an awning, or a tent which is closed on one side. It's lighter, cheaper, and easier to pitch up than a tent. But they come in a variety of designs, and some have features that others don't. Here is a guide to some of the best beach shelters on the market. 

    There are a number of ways to classify the types of beach shelters:

    By number of people: You can distinguish between the types of shelters by how many people they accommodate: there are shelters that accommodate 2, 3, or even 4 people.

    By number of walls: You can also distinguish between the number of walls that the shelter has. Some consist of a single wall. This might be good for ventilation, but it doesn't block out sunlight very much. Some can have 2 or 3 walls, but then will be provided with windows, to let in a breeze.

    By setup: It is also possible to classify them by the system how you set them up. Many shelters are designed with what is called a hub: it is like the hub of a bicycle wheel's spokes, where all the poles of the shelter meet in the center of the roof. This makes it much easier to construct than a tent, where you have to wrestle with tent poles. With the poles inserted into a hub, erecting it is not much more difficult than opening an umbrella.

    There are four designs of how to erect the shelter:

    • Compression-hub system: The poles of the shelter are joined to a handle and to the hub. You pull the handle upwards, and press the hub upwards in the direction of the handle. The poles of the shelter lock into place.

    • Side-pull system: Here you pull a string towards the side while standing outside the shelter, and the poles open up.

    • Top-pull system: Here, while standing outside the shelter, you pull a string upwards, and the poles open up.

    • Bottom-pull systems: You pull a string from underneath the hub downwards (much like an umbrella), and the shelter opens up.

    In all models, you use tent pegs that keep the fabric of the tent from flapping in the wind. There might also be sand pockets, where you can put rocks or sand to weigh down the edges of the tent fabric.

    Based on all the consumers' reviews we've scanned, these are the top things they mentioned about their new stuff:

    • Floor: Some shelters are equipped with a floor, which is more comfortable than sitting or lying on the sand. Sometimes they have an extended floor, which extends like a “porch” out of the shelter.

    • Windows: And they can have a number of windows: 1, 2, or 3 windows, so that there is adequate ventilation. The windows can be closed by a mesh, or with zippers, for extra privacy.

    • Pockets: A nice accessory is if the shelter has little pockets where you can keep valuables, like a wallet or your cellphone.

    • Prefer the XL size: Maybe you'll want to sit with a friend in the shelter in a couple of beach chairs. A shelter that fits 2 people might not fit 2 beach chairs as well. So it's better not to skimp, and get the larger size.

    • Durability: Some people were dissatisfied with the material of the poles. Since the shelter sets up like an umbrella, it has the same drawback as an umbrella: If one of the poles breaks, you pretty much have to replace all the poles. Also, if the shelter develops a tear, you have to be careful that the tear doesn't get wider.

    • UV Protection: Some beach shelters are made from material that blocks harmful UV rays. It can't be a replacement for suntan lotion/sunscreen, but it's still big plus. Look for a shelter with a UPF (=ultraviolet protection factor) of 50+. That shows that it blocks over 97% of UV rays.

    • Capacity and dimensions: The shelters are sold by how many people they can accommodate. A shelter that is 12.5 square feet can accommodate 2-3 people. Also look at the peak height—that's how high the shelter is in its highest point.

    • Sand pockets: Some shelters are equipped with pockets at the lower hem. You can fill these pockets with sand or rocks—this will weigh down the shelter and make it more stable. This is especially handy where the winds can be strong.
