Best beach tent I’ve had

I’ve had a lot of beach umbrellas and tents in my time, this one tops them all! It can handle a bit of wind, it’s large inside, easy to set up, easy to dismantle, and always fits back into the bag for the way home! Definitely get one!

A must piece of equipment

Easy to set up and to put down even on a windy beach. Manageable on your own. Brilliant protection from the sun and wind (we have the blue canopy). Pockets along the sides can be filled with sand for stability and sand pegs come with this set. A must piece of equipment for a couple or small family (2 adults, 2 children will fit comfortably. Lightweight and solid. Great product.

Best Buy

After much research on which beach tent to purchase, we decided on the Caribee UV Guardian. Must say it's great, offers a lot of head room and ample space to accommodate everything comfortably.

Love this beach tent!

Just purchased our second Caribee UV Guardian. Our first finally gave way in strong winds after 8 years’ reliable service. Easy to put up and down and fits comfortably back in the storage bag. Provides great shelter for 2 adults and 2 children.

We have had about 6 different types of tents for the beach with a 7 and 5 year old. This tent is hands down the best for simplicity, shade and stands up in the wind. Don’t waste your time with other tents. This is the bomb.

Easy up, easy down and easy to clean. This has made trips to the beach with the kids sooo much easier. Less time setting up and taking down means a more pleasant experience

Great beach tent

Simply a great quality beach tent. My last one lasted over 10 years of constant use

Brilliant product. Does everything it says it would. Great sun protection, easy to get a breeze through it, extremely easy to set up within 1 minute and pack up just as quickly. We could comfortably fit 3 adults and 2 kids under it. Great value and quality for such a low price, too

Internal Pocket1 answer

Is their an internal pocket where you can store a phone and a small speaker like a Beats Pill for music?

- Adelaide(1 year ago)

G'day Pat!

As these are out of stock at the moment I can't go and physically check one out, but I know that there is at least one small internal pocket that should fit your phone and speaker. There might even be two pockets, but don't hold me to that!

How many people can roughly fit inside comfortably?1 answer

Will this provide covering for more than 4 people?

- Parramatta(2 years ago)

G'day Adz,

The Caribee Guardian UV Beach Shelter doesn't havbe a recommend capacity so I can't give you a hard and fast answer.

This shelter is 1.9L x 1.9W x 1.4H so you could probably get 4 people inside it, but anything over that would most likely be uncomfortable.

Can you purchase a attachments for the front, like an awning?2 answers

We love our caribee sunshade, but when we go to the beach in the morning, the sun comes in. We love to have the door facing the beach so we can look out at the ocean, but it's full of sun. If there were an additional awning you could snap on with poles that would block the sun coming in, but keep the door open to allowing the breeze that would be spectacular! If one doesn't exist, would you let the manufacturer know of our suggestion.

- BRISBANE CITY, QLD(3 years ago)
There are no add-on accessories for this sorry Lisa, I'll mention it to our Caribee representative but given we've not had any other similar enquiries I can't see it hitting the shelves anytime soon. The best I can recommend is setting up a second shelter such as the Moana in front of your Caribee Guardian, but this would mean carrying more gear to the beach. Sorry we couldn't help with this.
- Snowys(3 years ago)

I'm agree with Lisa. Would love to have a front awning on the shelter.

Which colour would be cooler and provide more blockout from the sun or are they all much of a muchness?1 answer

- PERTH, WA(3 years ago)
Hi Melissa, these are all UPF50+ rated, so will offer the same sun protection regardless of the colour. In terms of how cool they will be, I don't think you will notice a lot of difference between them in terms of temperature, the fabric has a silver backing which does not let much light through.

How does rear wall work. Watched video but couldn't work out zippered rear wall.1 answer

Want a tent that can have three walls

- BENDIGO, VIC(3 years ago)
The rear wall is attached along the bottom edge Elaine, and a zipper runs around the top to secure it. You can see the wall lying undone at the front of the shelter about half way through the video.

Is it waterproof? What is the height?1 answer

- WA(3 years ago)
Hi Dagne, the fabric has a 2000mm waterhead rating. It will be fine in a light shower, but the structure itself is not designed to keep you dry. As for the height, you are looking at 1.4m at the peak.
- Snowys(3 years ago)

What are the dimensions of the package and its weight?1 answer

Is this product waterproof?

- WA(3 years ago)
Hi Dagne, I have updated these details on our website. Weight is 2.8kg, packed dimensions are 107L x 13W x 13H cm. The fabric is waterproof but won't provide much shelter in the rain given it cannot be fully enclosed.
- Snowys(3 years ago)

What are these like in the wind1 answer

How well do these shelters perform when the wind picks up?

- Snowys(4 years ago)
While the quick pitch frame of the UV Guardian is easy to set up, they have some limitations in high winds with the corner knuckles collpasing into their packed position.This can be easily overcome with the addition of the 4pk guy ropes listed in the product description for the UV Guardian added to each corner.
