    What is a Beach Tent?

    A Beach Tent, or Beach Shelter, is a small shelter that is usually formed from three sides and a floor. They are designed to keep your belongings off of the sand, and away from the risk of water damage. Perhaps their most important functions however, is their UV Rating.

    Children love spending hours playing in the sand, but harmful UV rays can seriously damage their skin. The best Beach Tents offer a level of protection from this, which when used in conjunction with suitable sun lotion, can dramatically reduce the risk of harm from UV rays.

    Top Tips for Choosing a Beach Tent / Shelter

  • UV Rating - This is so important for the safety of children especially that it's made the first point of our list. Look for a good level of UV protection. This is rated in UV followed by a number. This number is the SPF rating. You can read more on the SPF rating system, and kids sun protection here.
  • Wind Protection - Choose a beach tent that offers good protection from the wind, to help shelter the occupants. The Portal Outdoor range of beach tents offer 3 full sides, which helps defend you from the wind, and ensure that your gear stays where you put it! This design also helps ventilate the tent to avoid it getting too hot.
  • Built-In Floor - Many beach tents will include a floor. Choose one that is sewn-in for a fuss-free, sand-free solution to your beach tent needs. This will keep your gear free of sand, and also keep out any creepy-crawlies that are on the move!
  • Lightweight - The lighter the better. Choose a tent that packs down to a small size, and preferably includes a carry bag for ease of transportation. A beach tent with fibreglass poles is likely to be strong but still lightweight.
  • Easy Assembly - The Portal Outdoor Beach Tents are each to setup and take down, with a minimum of fuss. Check for simple designs that will make the product easier to assemble when you get to the beach.
