Written by on August 10, 2020 in Exercise and Fitness with 0 Comments

Do you often get to the beach only to realize that you have nowhere comfortable to sit? It could be that the sand is wet, which makes your beach towel unsuitable.

It could also be that you prefer raising your legs and supporting your back, which a beach blanket is unfitting. Perhaps you prefer a place where you can sit and shelter yourself against the blazing sun. Whatever your situation is, a heavy-duty beach chair should be in your checklist because its practical when it comes to camping on the beach.

An excellent heavy-duty chair will provide you with the most relaxed resting spot, among many other advantages. For you to understand why you need such a chair, here are its top benefits:

Comfortable Relaxation

You can sit on a beach mat or beach blanket, but that won’t give you the comfort that you want. For one, a beach mat or beach blanket cannot offer you back support or headrest, but a good beach chair can. These chairs come adequately-padded and spacious to allow you to sit comfortably for long hours. Some feature adjustable headrests to support your head and neck optimally.

The exciting part is that the best beach chairs are reclinable. You can slant the seat and backrest to sit as comfortable as you want. If you wish to sit at an angle or upright, that’s possible with an excellent beach chair. Some like beach loungers allow you to lie flat, which means you can grab a quick afternoon nap happily.

Safe Relaxation

The worst thing that can happen to you on the beach is falling from a chair. That’s one reason why there are specific chairs for the beach. So, don’t expect to carry your lawn chair unless it’s sturdily-built to also serve on the beach.

Beach chairs come solidly-built to give you resting stability and to guarantee your safety. They feature durable rust-resistant materials that don’t break upon placing your weight. Others like those for kids come with safety harnesses to hold the young ones as they relax on the beach.

Shelter from the Sun’s UV Rays

We know that the sun is right for your health as it’s a source of vitamin D. Too much of it, however, can lead to skin cancer. Therefore, you should find a way to block off the sun’s UV rays.  Luckily, most beach chairs come with shades in the form of umbrellas or canopies. Others don’t have either but provide you with a place to mount your umbrella.

By sheltering from the sun’s UV rays, it becomes easy to relax on the beach even when the sun is most intense.

Convenient Backpack

Nowadays, so many beach chairs come with carrying straps, which allow you to carry them on the back. Others convert into backpacks and are readily portable to be carried as such. Even those that don’t have carry straps come with carrying bags. In general, it’s more comfortable to carry a backpack beach chair to the beach than most chairs. They fold conveniently to promote portability. Mark you, some provide you with storage pockets for storing beach supplies after converting into backpacks. So, you may not find any need to carry a traditional bag if you have a backpack beach chair.

Storage Solution

Most beach chairs come with multiple storage pouches on the outside and at the back for keeping small items. It could be your phone, snacks, magazines, or keys. So, in case you want to use the items, you don’t have to struggle to find them. That also allows you to rest without having to move around. If you also prefer to have a few warm drinks or snacks, you can put them in the storage pockets. That’s’ more important when you go beach camping off-summer.

Personal Cooler

Try to imagine being on the beach on a hot afternoon, but you cannot find cold refreshments. Depressing, right? Well, it doesn’t have to be so. A good number of beach chairs come with inbuilt insulated pouches (coolers) to allow you to keep cold drinks. Some are spacious even to accommodate cold snacks. As a result, it becomes easy to refresh when it is hot without moving away from the beach. That also means that you don’t have to buy a portable chair if your beach chair comes with a cooler.

Drink and Items Holder

Do you sometimes place your drink on the sand surface? If so, how often do you find yourself tasting sand? That’s because of the strong wind that doesn’t spare anything. How about the wind blowing your cup away and spilling your drink? If you are tired of that, it’s time you invest in a good beach chair. Most of them come with drink holders that securely hold your open drinks. Some drink holders are integrated into a holding tray, which can also hold your keys, book, snacks, and phone.

An All-Round Outdoor Chair

A good beach chair is not just designed for the beach. It also comes handy in other outdoors. Whether it on an off-the-beach camp, the lawn, or the boat deck, you can use a beach chair. You can also use it at a picnic site, a sports event, or an outdoor concert.  Overall, this means you don’t have to buy another outdoor chair when you have the best beach chair at home.

What Do We Mean By A Good Beach Chair?

Well, a good beach chair should be super comfortable, and this is where heavy duty beach chairs have the upper hand. Their seats are broader, and the chairs are well-padded everywhere. A good chair should also be solidly-built to hold your weight. That means going for an option with a more robust framework and a weight capacity that is higher than your weight.

It’s also imperative that the beach chair is portable. Preferably, it should be lightweight and foldable. If you get an option with shoulder straps, that’s great as you can carry it on your back. Other considerations include drink holders, storage pockets, canopy or umbrella, and inbuilt cooler.


You need a good beach chair if you prioritize comfort, sitting safety, and convenience. So, it’s time you find your perfect outdoor chair. It shall undoubtedly improve your camping adventure.
