Updated on September 20, 2011

Soak Up the Sun in a Floating Lounge Chair

Ah, it's summer time and the livin' is easy. Well, of course it's easy if you aren't working in the sun. With a good floating lounge chair you can enjoy a day in the pool, the lake, or even on a calm ocean. Snoozing, reading, socializing, sunning, and just staying cool are the order of the day.

On this page, you'll find a variety of floating lounges and inflatable lounge chairs. Starting with the more affordable options, you will find inflatables that are very portable once deflated. You'll just need to decide if you want to be completely up out of the water or left with a few inches of water surrounding you to keep you cool. The longer lasting and slightly more expensive floating lounge chairs use pontoons, foam, and similar things to keep them afloat, but resemble a more traditional chair.

Tips on Care and Maintenance

A variety of materials are used in these loungers and for the sake of longevity, reading manufacturer's instructions about caring for and storing these chairs is important.
