Best beach chair TechnoBuffalo 2020

Going to the beach is one of humanity's favorite things to do, but sitting in the sand, or worse, pebbles, isn't the best part. With these beach chairs, you can sit in comfort and enjoy the sea air until you are ready to take a dip or eat ice cream.

Best overall: KingCamp Low Sling Beach Chair

Staff Pick

The two most important things to look for in a beach chair is how comfortable it is and how easy it is to carry to the beach. The KingChamp is excellent on both those counts, and the low back lets you slide down comfortably so you can bury your toes in the sand. It also comes with an easy carry bag and a large side pocket to hold your keys/phone/wallet or a nice cold drink.

Throwing shade: Alpha Camp Canopy Lounge Chair

Staying shaded when you are out and about is always a good idea. If you are at the beach, but not there to get a tan, then having some shade is a bonus. The Alpha Camp beach chair comes with a built-in shade as well as a drinks holder so you can stay cool and hydrated for as long as you need.

Stretch your legs: UNIPRIDE Beach Chairs (Set of 2)

If you are the opposite of the person who buys the chair above, you are likely looking for something to lay down on and get a tan. The Unipride chair lets you lay comfortably but has a headrest so you can sit up and read while stretched out. It has a large pouch at the back for all of your essential items and folds up neatly when it is time to head home.

Life's a beach

I love living in Southern California for many reasons, but one of the best is that I can go to the beach all year round and still enjoy nice weather. Having a nice set of beach chairs to relax in while I read a book and listen to the waves makes the whole experience even more enjoyable. My wife and I use the KingCamp Low Sling Beach Chair as it is easy to carry and comfortable. I use the high back version, and my wife uses the low slung one, but both are lovely to sit in for long periods.
