Here is also a few things to consider when buying beach tents.
1. Beach tent durability
– Fabric and frames used. The fabric should protect you from the ultraviolet rays coming from the sun. At least UPF 30 fabric.
– The frame should be strong enough to widthstand the gentle to strong beach wind.
2. Number of persons allowed
– You don’t want to head out to the beach and leave a family member without cover. Be sure that the tent is big enough for everyone.
3. Set-up time
– Set-up should be fast, a few minutes will do you. You would not want to spend most of your time getting the tent up.
