Five of the best beach tents for shielding from the summer sun
If you’re heading to the coast then make sure you have some shelter
Coleman Sundome Beach Shelter
The well-built Sundome wins points for durability. Its design leaves you quite open to the elements, but it has internal pockets for storing phones and snacks, and even a drying line for clothes.
Outwell Windscreen Air
The top-end Outwell windshield uses cutting-edge inflatable technology to provide an excellent shield for cooking or just lounging. Ideal as a caravan extension, it is surprisingly easy to set up.
LittleLife Family Beach Shelter
A sturdy family-favourite, this tent is spacious and designed to protect against all kinds of British weather (and, with a zip-up door, prying eyes too). It has a 50+ UPF rating, and a ventilation panel at the back to keep things cool and airy.
SKLZ Sport-Brella Umbrella Shelter
This easy-to-carry wind-breaker with an umbrella structure can fit three adults comfortably. It has protective side-flaps and heavy-duty steel stakes to stop it from blowing away.
Cressi 1946 Pop Up Beach Tent
If you’re looking to erect your beach shelter in a matter of seconds, the Cressi Pop Up is for you. It’s affordable, lightweight and compact and is coated with SPF 50+ for sun protection. Fits 3-4 people.
