Finding shelter at the beach can be difficult. Usually, there are hundreds of meters of sandy shore but at the prime location close to the water enjoying a picnic or day with the family, there isn’t a lot of shade. The shade that is available at the beach is usually upwards of the beach, bringing you quite a ways from the water that you came to enjoy.

Features of the Pop-Up Family Beach Tent Sun Shelter:

  • One piece pop up design that has no assembly required
  • Bottomless design makes easy clean-up and sand removal

  • 30+ UPF
  • 90” x 53” x 51”

Pros
Usually, the biggest concerns that families have when choosing a tent that is is how easily it is going to be maintained and cleaned. Choosing a pop up tent without a floor attached, like this one, can help to save cleaning time because you aren’t going to have to worry about leftover sand in the tent to shake out.

UPF rating is another thing to consider when you’re shopping for a beach shade, especially if there are going to be young children coming along. It’s important to search for a tent that’s going to protect their skin by blocking the UVA/UVB rays of the sun. The pop-up Family Beach shelter has a UPF rating of 30+, which is most accurately compared to a sunscreen of 30 SPF.

Cons
The shade provides cover from the sun above, but one side of the tent is completely open and the other side of the tent is designed to be tied to be open. If you’re looking for an easy to use shade that covers only the top of the tent, this is a great choice. If you are looking for something for more coverage, there are other choices available.

Beach shelters that provide you with the shade you need and get you out of the sun, but that are large enough for the family are often expensive. Models that are convenient and allow you to create shade in seconds with the pop-up design are usually even more expensive.
