Over the last few weeks we’ve brought you a selection of the best beach tents and shelters in an array of categories to suit all needs. This week we’ve decided to look at beach chairs to accompany your tent on your family holiday. From bright chairs to accompany your bright tent, to chairs suitable for children to use with their children’s beach tent. If you spend a lot of time on the beach, it’s nice to know that you’ve got comfort that you can rely on. So here’s our selection of the best beach chairs that we think will suit the growing needs of any modern family on vacation.
Best Childs Beach Chair
There’s one obvious choice for the best child’s beach chair when browsing Amazon, and that’s the Melissa and Doug collection. We think the
Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Bella Butterfly Chair is perfect for little girls, with it’s contrasting pink and green colours, and it’s large butterfly motif.
And for boys, the Happy Giddy Chair is ideal, with it’s bug smile, wide eyes and bright stripes, it’s sure to keep the little ones happy.
These Melissa and Doug chairs measure 25 inches high making them suitable for ages 3 and above. They fold up and down easily, fitting into the accompanying carry bag, making them perfect for transporting to the beach. The chairs are locked out when opened to ensure they do not collapse whilst in use. All of the beach chair designs are easily wiped clean, ideal for ice cream spills. Complete with a little cup holder, this chair has everything for your child needs for the beach.
Both of the above designs are rated 4.5 stars out of 5 on Amazon with 336 reviews between them. Customers loved the bold designs with most saying that their children/grandchildren regularly use the chair and love it.
Best Strong Beach Chair
One of the few criticisms of beach chairs is that those on the heavier side do not feel confident that most beach chairs will hold their weight, so we wanted to find a beach chair that would hold most weights making it suitable for everybody. Our search led us to the Big Jumbo Heavy Duty 500lb XL aluminium Beach Chair.
Ok, so it’s not the shortest or most complimentary name for a beach chair, but it claims to support up to 500lb in weight with it’s 6 denier polyester fabric and steel re-inforced, anodized aluminium frame. This large beach chair reclines into 4 positions and comes with hardwood arm rests, swing out drinks holder and three pockets for valuables.
The oversized seat measures 23 inches wide x 22 inches deep and sits 16 inches from the ground. It also features an extra high back rest of 30 inches with a 2.5 inch built in cushion flip pillow.
Rated 4.5 stars out of five on Amazon this strong beach chair is praised on it’s reliability and sturdiness. Customers were very impressed with it’s size also with one saying for it was the, “first time in a long time I am comfortable on the beach.” Another guy weighing in at 325lb agreeing that he felt confident in the chairs ability to hold his weight.
Some criticise the weight of the chair, and weighing in at around 16lb it is one of the heaviest beach chairs on the market. But that’s to be expected given the size of the chair. On the whole customers are more than satisfied with this chair, suggesting it is long lasting and well worth the money.
Best Bright Beach Chair
As always, we like to look at chairs that are aesthetically pleasing too, for those who like to stand out on the beach. And we think the Deluxe 5 Lay Flat Aluminum Beach Chair in the Beach design fits the bill perfectly!
With it’s busy fabric complete with sea shell and sailor design, you’d struggle to find a chair more at home on the beach. The material is 600 denier polyester making it quick drying and strong. The wooden arm rests have a marine grade coating to withstand the sun and comes complete with a drink holder, storage pocket and cushioned headrest.
The seat measures 20 inches wide x 15 inches deep and so this is a large beach chair and it offers 5 different recline positions for long comfortable beach days.
Despite only having 16 reviews, it is rated at 4.5 stars out of 5 and customers are pleased with the reliability and quality for the price. And with it’s beach design, we think this is the best bright beach chair there is.
Best Striped Beach Chair
Of course, we can’t look at beach chairs without finding you the best traditional styled striped beach chair. Taking into account amazon ratings, we’ve chosen the Telescope Casual Sun and Sand Folding Beach Chair in Blue and White stripes. With it’s aluminium frame, it’s not completely traditional, but here at the beachtentstore, we know that products have to be reliable too and we think this chair is both functional and cute.
With it’s simple design, it’s easy to fold up and take down. The fabric is weather resistant and the chair is lightweight making it easily transportable.
This striped beach chair is rated 4.5 stars out of five on amazon with 77% of customers rating it 5 stars. Customers described it as, “classic,” “easy and lightweight to carry” and, “sturdy and strong.”
