The beach is a place to have fun in the water, soak up the sun, and relax. What better way to relax than in a comfortable beach chair? They come in a range of styles to suit your needs.
A good, long-lasting, worthwhile beach chair has a few basic requirements. It should be lightweight and easy to carry. Its body should be made of metal, specifically aluminum, which takes longer to rust and isn’t eroded by salt. And for comfort purposes, it should have a carry capacity of at least 300 pounds and measure about 20 inches from arm to arm.
Types of Chairs
Whether you crave convenience, a place to sleep, or a comfy seat to read your book, there's a style for every desire. The following are some styles you may want:
Lounger: Sprawl out and experience a refreshing nap on a lounger. Many loungers come equipped with pillow headrests to enhance your level of relaxation. If sunbathing is more your thing, chaise lounges often have face cut-outs so you can comfortably lie on your stomach and tan the rest of your body for an even, sun-kissed glow.
Backpack chair: Designed for ultimate convenience, a backpack chair can be worn as a lightweight backpack that unfolds to reveal a chair once you get on the beach. These are especially great if you need to be hands-free to bring other beach essentials to the sand.
Travel bench: These are perfect for families or groups. Travel benches are portable benches that unfold into spacious benches. The amount of people a bench can fit varies by brand.
Classic beach chair: A "classic" beach chair is typically denoted by its height. Classic beach chairs tend to rise no more than 12 inches above the ground. These chairs give you the best of both worlds. They prevent you from sitting on the bare sand but allow you to extend your legs onto the ground so you can enjoy the cool water and wet sand on your feet. You also have the ability to evenly tan your entire legs instead of the above the knee section that usually faces the sun in a normal height chair.
Kids' chairs: Let little ones have fun beach chairs of their own. Many brands make beach chairs that appeal to the imaginations of kids. Your little one will feel special in a personal beach chair that's the perfect height with a fun animal theme. Kids' chairs can commonly be found with the back portion of the chair in the shape of a cool fish like a shark or insects such as caterpillars and whimsical butterflies.
