This wiki has been updated 21 times since it was first published in March of 2017. If you plan on spending the day out in the sun, it's a good idea to stay well hydrated. But getting a can, bottle, tumbler, or cup to remain upright on the sand can be tricky. These beach drink holders solve that problem and will let you happily and conveniently sip away at your beverage of choice without worrying about it tipping over or being carried off by the wind. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

May 25, 2020:

A beach drink holder seems like a frivolous purchase until you realize just how handy and versatile it can be. For instance, stake-style options like the Decko Heavy Duty, Sunnydaze Stakes, and Sorbus Wine Sticks can easily be driven into any soft ground, making them fair game for picnics, outdoor concerts, music festivals, trips to the lake, and more.

Selections that clip onto a surface, whether it be the arm of your chair or a beach umbrella pole, also happen to be ideal for camping, making the Yoy Clip and Robocup Best helpful for outdoor enthusiasts. Finally, we have table models like the Picnic at Ascot Travel, which is helpful for larger groups who want to chow down on snacks, play a game, or have an elevated space to keep books safe from water and sand or dirt.

When updating this list, we focused on items that are durable, UV-resistant, won't rust, are lightweight and easy to transport, and can accommodate a range of vessels, from red solo cups to cans to bottles and travel mugs.

We said goodbye to the O2Cool Grip On, which is a bit on the flimsy side, to bring on the PayandPack White. This generously-sized tray is perfect for families and groups who use umbrellas or sunshades and need something well off the ground for snacks, phones, sunglasses, and drinks. It can be placed at any height and is thoughtfully designed with four slots for smartphones, two of which are smaller, to accommodate myriad device sizes.

We also swapped the Preferred Nation Table for the Picnic at Ascot Travel, a very similar model with a slightly larger table surface, lifetime warranty, better carrying bag, and the option to purchase it in black.
