Best Beach Chairs and Umbrellas

Sometimes all you need are the basics to start your summer vacation off on the right note — a swimsuit, sunscreen, classic beach chairs and even an umbrella or two. Fortunately, there are plenty of beach chair and umbrella options to shop this summer that are equal parts stylish and practical — and we've conveniently rounded them all up for you below.

As fun as it is to splash in the ocean, you also can't go wrong with curling up on the beach and relaxing in the summer sun — with a beach towel or umbrella in tow, too. But let's be real: renting beach accessories can get real expensive real quick — especially if you're working off of a tight vacation budget. Luckily, there are tons of beach chairs and umbrellas on the market that are designed to last for years, keep you comfortable and help you stay within your budget.

There are plenty of portable beach chair options and canopy umbrellas from retailers like Amazon, Wayfair, Eddie Bauer and more, all of which will help you take your next beach adventure to new (much more comfortable) heights.

Shop a few of our picks below.
