Best Baby Beach Tents and Beach Accessories

Summer has finally arrived, and like many families, you may be eager to head outdoors for a little seaside relaxation. If you're planning a trip to the beach, you've probably already got sunglasses, swimsuits, and sunscreen on your list. But if you're traveling with a baby, you may want to pack a few special accessories, like a beach tent. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, infants under six months old should avoid sun exposure. That means having a great beach tent is just as important as packing sunscreen when heading to the beach with a baby. Baby beach tents provide a cool shady area to protect your babies from the sun and a (somewhat?) clean spot to change your little one's diaper or put them down for nap time. It also makes a pretty handy home base for all your stuff!

What to Look for in a Baby Beach Tent

Don't just grab the first baby tent you see on the store shelf. As with any baby gear purchase, it makes sense to do your research and put a little thought into it. Choose the best baby tent for your family's needs, prioritizing quality and safety. Here are a few questions you may want to consider:

  • How much shade does it offer? Shade is one of the main reasons you want a beach tent, right? Choose a beach tent designed from UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) material to get more complete protection from the sun's rays. Enclosure options on all sides are another bonus, but be sure there's a way to remove or zip down walls if necessary. Those baby tents can heat up like little ovens on the beach!
  • Can it withstand wear and tear? You'll need a durable, high-quality tent to withstand the intense sunlight and windy weather at the beach. Evaluate the materials the beach tent is made from so that you don't have to invest in a new product every year.
  • Is it simple to put together? It may look pretty, but is your child going to be entering junior high by the time you get it assembled? Pop-up options are a fantastic time-saver. Tents that are easy to fold up and come with a travel bag also make transport easier.

In addition to a tent, you'll probably want a few more accessories to make sure your baby is safe and comfortable at the beach. Take a look below at our favorite products that will make your family day at the beach a blast.
