This wiki has been updated 3 times since it was first published in February of 2019. When you’re at the beach and need a break from the sun’s harmful rays, canopies are your best bet, since they can accommodate more people than a regular umbrella, and are available with anchoring systems that keep them from blowing away in the wind. We've included a variety of different styles that work equally well at the park or in your backyard as on sand. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best canopies for the beach on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

February 08, 2019:

Several of the models included here are designed and proven to stand up to very windy days, which is a common requirement among users. These include the Otentik Sunshade and Red Suricata Sunshade. We also felt this list wouldn’t be complete without the Sport-Brella, a sturdy way for up to two adults and a couple of small children to get out of the sun or rain. And if you attend your child’s baseball or soccer games, a single chair with a good overhead cover like the BeachMall model might be all you require for adequate protection.
