Texsport Calypso Cabana Beach Shelter Review

by Jenny on August 4, 2013

Shopping for a shelter that’s going to be able to accommodate the family for the day out at the beach leaves you with a few options. One option that can suit the needs of the family and provide you with a budget friendly and affordable option is the Texsport Calypso Beach Shelter.

Texsport Calypso Cabana Beach Shelter

The shelter is designed for an entire day of protection with enough room to house everything that you need for a day trip. Though there are only three sides to the beach shelter, there are extended storm flaps that provide additional protection and privacy for those fun days spent making memories.

Features of the Texsport Calypso Cabana Shelter:

  • Pole and Ring System with shock-corded design for easy assembly
  • Four weights for stability
  • 48” x 48”
  • 3 Sided beach protection
  • Storm flaps and windows for privacy that allows air flow
  • Full UV Protection

Pros
The beach shelter is easily able to accommodate two beach chairs or provide a shaded area on the beach for children seeking shelter from the sun. Extending out from the front of the shelter is a rim that adds to the level of sun protection and creates a comfortable space. The easy to set-up and functional design of the shelter makes it a popular choice for families and people without children alike.

Cons
The floor of the beach shelter is attached. Attached floors can rip or tear when lawn chairs or loungers are being used within the sun shelters and can be difficult to clean. Though durable, this is something you should consider. To get all of the sand out of the shelter it’s often required to flip it over and shake the sand out from within – often requiring more than one person to complete the task.

In addition to the attached floor, customers have noted that the wind can take the shelter quite easily. It’s important to use the attached sand bags to secure the shelter to the ground as there are no pegs that in the design that can be stuck in the sand to secure the tent. You’re going to want to make sure the tent is secure while you’re using it in the wide open spaces at the beach to avoid chasing your beach shade down the shore.

Final Thoughts
The affordable Texsport Calypso Beach Cabana is a great choice for adults that are looking for a bit of shelter from the sun at the beach. It`s also a great choice for families because of the kid-friendly design and the mesh windows can allow you to monitor the children inside of the tent. Combined with an open side, parents are able to have easy access to the children. With enough room for all the gear you`re bringing along to the beach it provides you with an adequate space for a fun day out.

It comes with high quality reviews and seems to be a favorite of families that are looking for a space that is going to be suitable to everyone, not necessarily just for children.
