Many people overlook the importance of protecting oneself against UV rays and yet sunlight can be very dangerous for people’s skin if they are exposed to it over long periods of time. In truth, most people enjoy the look of a tanned body, although the difference between a tanned body and an unhealthy body is very slim. It only takes a few minutes to learn about the dangers of UV exposure and what it can do to a person’s skin, so maybe people should take protection far more seriously than they do.
For instance, people should always protect themselves when they’re at the beach and we’re not talking about sunscreen alone here. Nothing can protect you better at the beach than beach tents, especially those designed with the exact purpose of accommodating one or more adults. To give you a better idea of what the market has to offer, we put together a list of the ten best beach tents money can buy.
Best Beach Tents 2017
10Pacific Breeze EasyUp Beach Tent
Easy to set up, this particular tent comes with large ventilation windows and an overall clever design aimed at keeping you protected and cool at all times. Not only that but it is also a lot lighter than most beach tent, a lightweight nature that recommends it for anyone not willing to carry a lot of baggage when going to the beach.

9Lightspeed Outdoors Quick Cabana Beach Tent Sun Shelter
You will do doubt appreciate this tent’s capacity to stand out on a crowded beach, thanks mainly to its ingenious and cool design. Aesthetics aside, this tent is also very lightweight and easy to set up, even in situations in which the beach floor isn’t level. Also worth mentioning is that despite its lightweight nature, this surprisingly spacious tent can accommodate between two and four people at the same time.
8Coleman Compact Shade Shelter
Coleman’s Compact Shade Shelter might just be one of the most cost-effective beach tents on the market. We say this because, despite its affordable price, it still provides the same protection a much more expensive tent would. At the same time, it features a floor mat, sand bags, hanging pockets, and a door that enables you to give yourself a bit of privacy inside the tent at any given time.
7Texsport Calypso Cabana Beach Shelter Canopy
Thanks to its heavy-duty polyester construction, this particular beach tent doesn’t just protect you against harmful UV rays but it also ensures a much better durability in the lung run. It also comes equipped with stakes, sang bags, exterior weights, and a storage bag for good measure. Overall, Texsport Calypso Cabana Beach Shelter Canopy may not be a high-end beach tent but it is definitely a cost-effective one for anyone on a budget.
6Shade Shack Instant Pop Up Family Beach Tent and Sun Shelter
Like the name suggests, this particular beach tent can be set up in just a couple of minutes, thanks mainly to its ingenious design. This being said, the easiness of setting it up so quickly is facilitated by the tent’s lack of features. Then again, this is pretty much what you expect when buying a beach tent in this price range. Even so, the UV protection this tent offers is decent to say the least, so no worries there.
5Lightspeed Outdoors Quick Beach Canopy Tent
This canopy-style tent is designed to provide you with shade without getting in the way by being too large or rigid. As such, the tent has a wall on one side only, allowing you to enjoy the full view around the tent from within. Also worth mentioning is the fact that this tent is surprisingly spacious, being able to accommodate a family of four along with chairs despite weighing just 7 lbs.

2Genji Sports One-Step Instant Push Up Hexagon Beach Tent
Just like the name suggests, this particular beach tent has an extraordinarily easy setup, which is perhaps why it’s so popular in the first place. Interestingly enough, its easy setup has very little to do with its overall size, seeing how it can accommodate standing adults without impeding their movement in any way. Not only that but it also benefits from a very good UV-protective exterior designed to keep you safe from the sun during even the hottest summer days.
1Focusun High Quality Sun Shelter
