Whether you are headed to a long beach vacation, or a simple trip to the baseball field, a sturdy and reliable portable sun shelter is important to your family’s health and comfort. A beach sun shade or sun shade tent can reduce the chances of skin cancer and increase your chances of enjoying the great outdoors at the same time.  

No matter where these outdoor adventures take you, a portable sun shelter is a smart and affordable addition to your plans. These sun shelter options offer superior shade and are recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation. Bring style and convenience by choosing sun shelters for the beach from RIO

Pop Up Sun Shelter Options Packed with Incredible Features 

When enjoying your favorite sports and outdoor recreation, you never forget to bring water, food, or sunscreen. Now you can add a portable sun shelter to the list of items to never forget the next time you and your family are enjoying time outdoors. Sitting in the shade is not only much cooler than the direct sunlight, it is also much safer. Types of sun shelters for the beach from RIO include: 

  • Sun shade tents: Tents aren’t only for sleeping at the campsite! A sun shade tent is a great way to shield your family from wind, rain, dirt, and of course harmful UV rays that can lead to skin cancer. These tents can be used as a pop up sun shelter that provide simple shade on the go. You can even choose from a kid’s tent option with a protective barrier to keep a layer of fabric under the tent to keep your child’s skin away from the hot sand. Choose from options like RIO’s Beach Sol Cabana Beach Tent which features a wide opening to accommodate multiple chairs, or for even more sun protection, checkout the Total Sunblock Beach Tent. Whatever your needs, we’ve got you covered!
  • Beach sun shades: A beach sun shade is the perfect solution to enjoy relaxation by the ocean without the discomfort and risks that come from lying under the sun’s harmful rays. ShelterLogic provides a wide variety of beach sun shades so you can choose an option that best suits your needs, whether that’s a total sunblock shade or a versatile umbrella cabana.
  • Pop-up canopy: A pop up canopy is an ultra-convenient sun shelter with premium protection. With four legs and a sturdy fabric cover, these are useful for farmers markets, concerts, sporting events, and of course the beach. Their lightweight yet strong construction offers supreme protection against UV rays while also offering  convenience to any beach day. Easy to assemble and ready to go in a moment’s notice, use a canopy for easy breezy coverage on the go. 
  • Cabanas: Add a carefree vacation vibe to any outdoor event with a fabric cabana with amazing additions like mesh pockets for your cell phone or keys. Cabana-style beach tents have three walls, a wide open front, an angled roof, and enough space for 3 to 4 people to enjoy. You can even use a cabana as a fixture by your garden or on your pool deck when you need a relaxing spot for a barbecue gathering. 

From the campsite to your own backyard, these functional sun shelter options from RIO are packed with convenient features, including: 

  • UPF 50+ Sun protection: Portable sun shelter options from RIO provide impressive protection from the sun with UPF 50+ rating. Ample shade will increase your safety and enjoyment when you’re spending time in the harsh sunlight.

  • Convenient pockets: Choose from cabanas and sun tents with pockets for incredible convenience. Stash away cell phones, keys, water bottles, or anything you want to keep out of the sand and sun.
  • Stability: Pop up sun shades from RIO have built-in vents that promote increased airflow while providing extra stability. Enjoy the breeze without any worry with shelters that include weight bags or stakes for added strength.
  • Durable fabric: Ultra strong polyester fabric will not only shield you from sun and wind, it can also offer outstanding protection from moisture. This fabric is built to last for durable season after season performance.
  • Strong construction: The powder coated construction on these sun shelters prevents rust and corrosion from wreaking havoc on your portable sun shelter. Don’t worry about the sand and surf taking a toll on your sun shelter with smart construction from RIO.

Why a Beach Sun Shade is Important for Your Health 

These portable sun shelter options from RIO offer more than a comfortable place to relax outdoors enjoying time with family and friends. Prolonged exposure can cause skin cancer due to UVA and UVB rays. This is such a widespread problem in the United States, that 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. 

You may be surprised to learn that you even need a portable sun shelter when it’s cold outside. Despite clouds and cooler temperatures, prolonged and repeated sun exposure can still post a serious threat to your health. This doesn’t mean you have to reduce time outdoors to reduce your chances of getting skin cancer or damaging your skin. One of the easiest ways to cut your risk is by staying out of the sun with help from a portable sun shelter. Wearing clothes that cover up your skin as well as high-quality sun screen will also help keep you safe. 

Where Can You Bring a Portable Sun Shelter? 

You may see these incredible sun shelters and immediately think they belong on the beach. While they provide incredible functionality in the sand, they can be used in a variety of different ways year round, including: 

  • Playground: Bring along a portable sun shelter for a quiet place for you and your family to enjoy the outdoors.
  • Concert: Take in the sights and sounds of an outdoor concert under a canopy or tent with incredible sun protection.
  • Sporting events: From your child’s soccer game to an adult kickball event, these portable sun shelters can benefit your skin at countless sporting events.
  • Camping: Whether kicking back and reading a book or fishing, use one of these high-quality sun shelter options for all day shade in a snap.
  • Backyard BBQ: From your pool deck to outdoor garden area, these portable sun shelters offer hours of sun protection for you and your family. 
  • Beach: Long days at the beach are where having reliable sun shade is the most valuable. With beach sun shades, you can focus on fun and relaxation on your vacation instead of lathering on aloe vera.
