I am a redhead, so I burn in the sun….like crispy. But I love the beach. I think these beach shade tents and umbrellas are ingenious!
When I would take my kids to the beach, also redheads, I let them stay in the sun for a little bit of time, but then they really needed to get out of the sun, even though I had them slathered with sun block, I would end up taking them home to get them out of the sun. Sunburns are no fun for the kids or for the mommy. I wish these had been invented back then.
Fast forward 20 years and now I have 4 grandsons and 2 of them are fair skinned. I will be getting one of these for their mothers. I think it would be nice to have the option of a nice beach shade tent.
Can you think of any other places that a beach umbrella would be useful? Little league baseball practice?
Here are some great shade tents and umbrellas that I found that I will buy for my kids.

Summer Beach Cabana / Tent – Quick Setup and Floorless
I love the screen. If you have been to the beach, you know there are bugs. This will help keep them down some. The fact that it zips up, but that it is floorless is kind of nice. When I feel that is time for the kids to get out of the sun, it doesn’t mean they are ready to. With this shade tent they can still play in the sand and I can feel better about them and the sun.
Kid Sized Beach Shade Cabana
These are made just for the kids. Perfect for a baby to sleep safely in while at the beach or the kids to just get out of the sun, but still be able to play.
Big Beach Umbrellas
You might choose to just use a big umbrella. For years this is all we had to protect us at the beach. It works well, but the new models are so much better, especially if you have kids. Check out some great beach umbrella choices.
