Choosing the Perfect Beach Umbrella
Wondering how to pick out a beach umbrella for your next vacation? When it comes to choosing a sun shade that provides you with the comfort, convenience, and quality you’re looking for, here are a few things to consider:
- Umbrella size: How many chairs are you looking to fit under the umbrella? Are you hoping to store additional beach accessories such as coolers, sound systems, beach toys, and more? If you’re looking to shade a larger area, you may consider investing in a beach tent or portable canopy.
- Materials: Not every umbrella is designed to withstand the beach environment. You’ll need a sun umbrella that can endure high winds, corrosive sand, salt water, and frequent setup and tear down.
- Sun protection: The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends an Ultraviolet Protection Factor of 30 or greater to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun. Our RIO umbrellas offer UPF 50+ ratings, ensuring 98% of the sun’s rays are blocked from the skin. We even carry RIO’s Total Sun Block Umbrella which offers 99.2% protection from UVA and UVB rays.
- Portability: Ensure set up and tear down of your beach campout is a breeze with a convenient, easily portable sun umbrella. Look for a portable beach umbrella with integrated sand anchors for easy setup and comfortable fabric carry bags.
Beach Umbrella Frequently Asked Questions
How big should a beach umbrella be?
Beach umbrellas are typically 7–8 in. in diameter, large enough to provide shade for two large beach chairs. Oversized models range from 8 to 9 in., providing extra space for additional chairs and beach necessities, like our Total Sunblock Extreme Shade Sun Shelter.
How do you get a beach umbrella to stay in the sand and keep from blowing away?
There are a couple of tricks to ensuring your beach umbrella stays put during your trip.
- First and foremost, it’s important to choose an umbrella with a high-quality integrated sand anchor.
- Choose a spot away from wind tunnels, which can occur between sand dunes or between buildings. Don’t tilt the inside of your umbrella into the wind.
- Clear loose terrain by brushing away the top few inches of sand. Deeper sand will provide a firmer foundation for your anchor.
- For a standard 7’ beach umbrella, aim to dig a hole that is 18-24” deep to secure the anchor. Once the pole is in the ground, compress the sand by walking around the pole, then pile the sand up to create an even more solid foundation.
