The best beach shelter.,
This review is from: Coleman Sundome Beach Shelter with UV Guard (Sports)The Coleman Sundome is the best beach shelter there is. I have no hesitation in recommending it. We bought it last year when it was in a blue colour, this year it is green.
We looked at various makes, all the different designs, and selected this to be the best. Why? It has a fully zippable front (the groundsheet bit) which enables you to have a changing room / toilet for the kids on the beach, or even for protection in a rain shower.
It's perfectly big enough for a few people to sit under. The materials are light and strong. The top canopy has a little overhang to give you maximum shade. The slots that the fiberglass poles slot into are well reinforced. (We tried the Millets deluxe shelter first and the poles ripped though the fabric, took it back and went for this one). The Coleman brand is trustworthy.
Last year's Blue version featured a little zipped opening in the back which allowed (a) a breeze though and (b) a view out the back to see what the kids were up to, so if you can find a blue one opt for it otherwise this new green one will do you nicely.
