A beach tent canopy is something you would more or less find at the beach but they serve a good purpose especially if you camping near the lake or the river. They offer shade in most cases which is great if your bringing the family or parents along that might need the shade that a beach tent canopy offers. You can of course use it at the beach if you’re going to be camping alongside a nice lake beach.
Most of the Beach tent canopies we are suggesting below are pop-up or instant setup canopy styles. Let’s be real here, who wants to set up the ones with the poles, especially after traveling so far to get to your destination.
Many uses for a Beach Tent canopy
You have probably seen them fairly frequently down at the beach and for good reason. Gone are the days we need to huddle up to the shade of a tree or worse yet just suffer under the hot sun. When you camping and depending on where you are traveling too it simply might offer shade in the abundance and at the specific times, you want it. That’s exactly why these tent canopy setups are great and ideal. They fold up pretty well so they should not take up too much of your valuable space when traveling.
If you’re going to be going down to the river for the day there then chances are you won’t have the cover of many treats down by the river bed and it’s a hot day! That’s why the beach tents are perfect to just bring down and offer you a relaxing day instead of worrying about the sunburns that come along with being out in the sun.
- Travel set up so you can carry it like a lawn chair
- Very spacious
- Quick Setup
- Might not block out the air during the windy day due to big windows
- Can act as a parachute during windy days if not secured
The Pacific Breeze Easy Setup Beach Tent Deluxe XL is a great addition to your trip. It’s super fast and convenient to set up and the perfect shade companion for those hot days. The weight of this unit is just around 6lbs and it folds down to great travel size. It will provide protection from all the elements including the sun, rain, and wind for whatever outdoor activities you have planned. Large windows provide some great ventilation as well. While it’s not waterproof in nature it does offer water resistance.
The Pacific Breeze is suitable for 3-4 people if you need it and even has internal pockets to store all your valuable belongings in case you need to go for a swim. It also does include stakes and 5 sand pockets for added stability during windy conditions.
Another nice feature included in the mat on the ground that folds out which keeps the grime and dirt away so you don’t have to sit on it. The quality is super enough that this is not a one-year product. If you take care of it, it will offer many years of service. Just ensure that when you put it away you clean it and it does not go back into the packaging damp. The Pacific Breeze Easy Setup is something we recommend!
I must admit I really like the Gorich Large Popup for each canopy tent. It offers much more shade than the previous breeze model we wrote about but still offers nice rear ventilation which is going to keep you cool on those hot days.
The Gorich truly opens up with ease and in a breeze, as it’s a popup style so you simply throw the thing and in a second it’s ready to go. Nothing is much more convenient than that setup. Included in this setup is also side sandbags to keep the thing stable during those windy days as well as wind ropes with stakes and also with sandbags. The silver-coated fabric will also offer 50+ sun protection to you and your family. The other feature I like which is also included in the previous breeze model is the floor mat which extends far past the ceiling of the canopy.
This is certainly a nice spacious model and offers a 45% bigger space than other beach tents at a similar price. The price is certainly an attractive feature and one of the main reasons it made this list (along with the feature we spoke of previously)
Based on reviews we read about this unit specifically is that you can easily fit 3-4 people comfortably. This is great when you got the parents or kids with you looking for a little shelter from either the rain or the sun. There are additional holders on either side of the tent to put your phone, keys, or any other items you might have with you.
Just like we mentioned previously it sets up in seconds and folds up into a very small manageable size.
If your simply camping and not going to the lake or the river and just want something for either the shade or possibly the rain then the EZ UP PYRAMID instant shelter might be what you’re looking for. Lots of great reviews and the fact that it’s an easy setup and easy put away is what makes it onto our list.
The EZ UP comes in a variety of color options for you to choose from. Clearspan cathedral ceiling for increased headroom is an added bonus. When fully set up this is going to give you a good 10×10 feet of space at the base and at the top of the canopy. While we might not suggest putting your BBQ under it, it does offer a great shade or rain shelter for sitting under or possibly setting up over the food station during serving. This also comes with an additional 3-year manufacture defect warranty.
It includes high-density two-piece wheels and a wide axel for increased stability during transport. The toggle leg adjustment systems make setup and takedown fast and of course EZ. The top of the canopy will offer you a reinforced fabric top on the corners which increases the durability of the canopy. It also comes with auto slider pull pins which improve the auto slider for quick lock release when taking it down. When you set it up or put it away you will also get a great storage bag with wheels. The wheeled bag is great and easy to move from point a to b.
You can see from the picture below it offers a nice large footprint which can accompany many people under.
If you are looking for something super versatile then look no further. i really love the design of this next canopy tent because of the fact it has no back, front, or sides. It’s almost essentially like hanging a tarp above you which protects you from all the elements.
The reason I picked this next one is that it’s simply different from the rest we reviewed. I really liked this one first off for its price point and its reviews overall done by purchasers of the unit. It has the versatility to be set up in different ways as well because it essentially has posted on the sides. This allows you to set it up so it’s flat on the top of you can have it so that it comes down in the back. Due to the sun always moving having something you can set up in different configurations for me really caught my eye.
The poles are made of rust-proof aluminum and the patented reinforced corners will last for a long time. The weight comes in at approx 4.8kg and 50cm shoulders carrying bag that fits in a suitcase. It also includes a cooler pocket for your drinks and snack. The tarp itself is UPF 50+ protection and water repellent. It will help you keep shaded on those hot sunny days and dry on the wetter ones. Setup only takes a few minutes and as I said again you could get it up in a few different ways.
We hope we have provided you some great choices for your beach tent canopy. The choices we picked were based on product reviews of customers from Amazon and the items all have top ratings and many purchases.
