A baby beach tent or sun canopy serves a variety of purposes for providing your baby with a sun shelter. Many beaches don’t have any places where you can find shade so bring a baby beach tent will provide much needed shade when you need it, extending your day at the beach. We have researched all the options for beach tents, with sun protection, portability and durability as the highest priorities.
If you are looking for a beach tent for babies, this sun canopy should be your top pick. The MonoBeach Baby Beach Tent is not only easy to setup and take down, but it is also a perfect size for travel (it can even fit in a suitcase), it is durable, offers great protection from the sun, and it is versatile. With an included baby beach pool built into the floor of the tent, your baby can start enjoying the water without worrying about crashing waves from the ocean.
In addition to the above, the features of the MonoBeach Infant/Baby Beach Tent are: UPF 50+ sun protection. Open size: 47.5″ W x 31.5″ D x 27.5″ H. It includes a nice travel size carry bag and 4 sand stakes to help keep it anchored on breezy days. For ventilation, there is a screened window that closes securely with velcro when not in use.
The bottom floor of the tent can be zippered off, but many owners of this tent opt to fill the baby pool with either sand or water for the baby to play in. If you are going to use this baby beach tent with the floor, it is recommended that you dig a shallow hole in the sand so when you place the tent over the hole, the pool has room to drop into the sand.
Before taking any pop up style beach tent to a windy beach with babies, we recommend practicing how to fold up the beach tent.
If you are looking for a more traditional baby beach tent with great privacy, the Schylling UV Play Shade might be a better option for you. This baby beach tent is also a good choice for babies who need a bit more of a darker beach tent to sleep in. With the highest possible rating of SPF 50+ this beach tent for babies is well built and a great value.
The solid color sides of this tent make it not only a safe beach tent for babies to sleep in, but it’s also possible for moms to enter the tent and breastfeed. In very hot weather, this tent can get a little stuffy even with the large screen window. We recommend a small clip on tent fan like the: O2COOL 5-Inch Battery Operated Clip Fan. For more tent fan options that can be used batteries at the beach, see our Best Tent Fan article.
Other features include: Tent setup size: 31″ H x 51″W x 39″D. Instant Pop Up design. Waterproof Polyester. Includes on the go carry bag. Also includes tie down pegs and sand pockets to keep it securely in place where ever you are.
We like this tent not only because of it’s excellent sun protection, durability, and portability, but also because of the size. This is a beach tent that you can get for your baby, but continue to use throughout toddler years and even as a young child. Because it is well built, it will last a long time and survive many trips to the beach and the outdoors.
We recommend the Babymoov Anti-UV beach because it has designed the Anti-UV Tent Parasol to keep your little one out of direct sunlight while playing outdoors. It features a UPF 50+ coating that protects against up to 99% of UV rays. It also protects against harmful elements such as mosquitoes thanks to its built-in bug net.
The tent is easy to assemble and store away thanks to its pop-up system, and is big enough for 2 children. This play area has more than one trick up its sleeve. It has a large opening at the front and two windows with flaps at the back for optimal ventilation. The mosquito net can be zipped shut by an adult and its fine mesh protects your baby from insects during the summer.
Other features include: Tent setup size: 39″ L x 35″ W x 33″ H. Instant Pop Up design. Waterproof Polyester. Includes on the go carry bag. Also includes tie down pegs to keep it securely in place where ever you are.
We like this tent not only because of it’s excellent sun protection and bug protection, but also durability, portability, and size.
