Best Beach and Yard Umbrellas for Summer

Updated on December 8, 2014

Umbrellas Provide Relief from the Sun

Beach and yard umbrellas protect you and your family from both UVA and UVB radiation. Sun umbrellas can keep you up to 10 degrees cooler on a hot day making your day at the beach or afternoon in the yard an enjoyable experience.

Living at the beach has given me the inside on the different umbrellas and I thought I would pass along some of what I have learned. I always take umbrellas to the beach and use one in our yard to enjoy sitting around the table with family and friends.

Today's sun umbrellas are lighter and easily carried to the beach. The sun umbrellas for your yard are stable and make an attractive addition to your outdoor furniture.

Beach Umbrellas

Enjoy the beach without the direct sun.

Beach umbrellas will help deflect direct sunlight and help you avoid a sunburn. Beach umbrellas come in all shapes and sizes and with many styles available you are sure to find one that will meet your needs.

Bring along one or maybe two umbrellas for the shade you will need to spend a glorious day at the beach.

      The older I get, the more interested I am in protecting my skin and a beach umbrella is definitely the way to go when in direct sunlight. Blessed.

      I love the idea of a beach umbrella - especially when you add the little table and the towel hooks!.
