Best Beach Chairs for 2015 Summer

Updated on July 30, 2015

Love Living at the Beach and Want You to Enjoy Your Beach Day in Comfort

Most vacationers love spending time on the beach but very few arrive with just a towel. Spending the day on the sand with the surf roaring in the background can be comfortable and relaxing if you have the right equipment.

I live at the beach and have tried many, many beach chairs and I can tell you from experience, the number one item on your list should be a comfortable beach chair for each person in your group.

There are many different kinds to choose from and you should definitely have the one that suits your needs.

Backpack Beach Chairs

Whether walking to the beach or parking and walking, carrying a backpack beach chair is the best. Leaves your hands free to carry other items or hold the hand of your little ones. This was one of the great inventions for beach goers!

My Big Guy Loves this Chair!

Sturdy and comfortable for the big man in your life! This chair is light weight so it is easy to carry, open and adjust but made for the larger men. If you are big on having enough room to be comfortable--this chair is the perfect choice. Easily supports 500 lbs.

With arms rests that are 4 inches wide and an extra-tall backrest of 30 inches this chair is the one that I bought for my husband. He's a tall, big guy and he loves this chair. It is also light and easy to carry with an adjustable shoulder strap so that I can even carry it onto the beach if he will be meeting us later. Great chair for your big guy.

Great Beach Chair for Reader

Backpack straps allow for hands free transport-great for readers.


For Every Reader that Goes to the Beach - This is the chair for you!

I love to read on the beach and I truly wonder what I ever did before I found this chair. Yes, you can lay in your stomach and read your book--crazy! Just flip up the pillow and lay on your stomach to read-how easy is that.

I use this chair every day that I go to the beach which is one block away from my home. This is MY chair and it is perfect if you are a reader and like to read on the beach. This way I get a tan on the front and beach without missing a word of the great book I am reading, If you are a reader you will love this style of chair that takes into account your reading and your comfort.

Change the position of the canopy on this chair to guard against those harmful rays.


Canopy Beach Chair

Keeping out of the sun glare when you are reading or just to escape the damaging rays brings us to the clever canopy beach chairs. The canopies can shield you from the sun or when not needed can hide behind the chair causing no problems.

These chairs are very popular at the beach this season and I notice more and more of them in all sizes for the large to the child's version. I think this can save you from carrying a large umbrella for your visit to the beach which can be a big help with all the equipment that folks like to take with them.


Hi Boy Beach Chairs

Beach chairs that are higher off the sand are often easier for seniors to get up and down from. They are great for Moms and Dads too as they jump up and down to help make that sandcastle or grab a towel to wrap around the little swimmers.

Storage Pouch with Cell Phone Holder too-light weight to carry and sturdy on the beach


Reclining Beach Chairs to Order

Sport-Brella Recliner Chair

Very lightweight with easily adjustable 3-position recliner and stay protected with the 360-degree overhead umbrella.


Reclining Beach Chairs

Ahhh-to lay back and relax while listening to the surf is just what the doctor ordered for a vacation at the beach. These reclining chairs make that a feature you will soon learn to love.This is my absolute favorite to use at the beach near my house.

my sister likes this version of chair so much that she bought two and she and her husband rave about the fact that they have never been so comfortable on the beach.

Childrens Beach Chairs to Order

Childrens Beach Chairs

Beach chairs come in all different sizes including the perfect size for the children. They love having their very own chair on the beach and you will love the fact that your chair stays available for you!

My grandkids are so glad to have their own chair that they actually carry in all the way over the dunes and on to the beach. I am a bit fussy about getting sand all over my chair as the kids climb in and out of it so it just adds to the fun that they have their own spot to relax and get as sandy as they want.

Many Things to Consider When Choosing a Beach Chair

As you can see, picking a beach chair is something that needs some consideration and thought. Do you want to lie down and read, sit hi or low, have the option of shade or sun and many other things.

Before you buy, make sure to think about yours and your families needs.

Having the right chair for you and your family can really make the difference between fun in the sun and "is it time to go home yet?"

Where is Your Favorite Beach?

      What can be better than lay in the sun and enjoy every minute of your life breathing the fresh air on the sea-shore? I am a strong supporter of such outdoors activities, being fed up with all these claims that life is impossible without Internet: Internet:
