A popular and functional beach shelter, the Caribee UV Guardian Beach Shelter is a lightweight pop-up beach shade that comes with a UP50+ sun protection rating so you know you and your family are protected from harmful UV rays.
The innovative pole design enables set up with a pull of a string, and packed down with a push on the frame, while ventilation and sun protection can be adjusted via a rear zippered door.
Integrated sand bags on each side create stability. Complete with sand pegs and carry bag, the Caribee UV Guardian Beach Shelter is a great companion for a family trip to the beach.
This tent is super easy to put up and take down, but its real selling point is how light it is. Lighter than a small camping chair, we strap this to our back and ride to the beach, on our bikes. I just wish that it had doors on all sides, so that we could manage the airflow better and provide privacy for changing etc. My last one collapsed in the wind and twisted beyond repair, even with heavy sand in bottom pockets but I'm buying another as it great value.
Wind is the biggest issue with these shelters, Mel, we recommend adding a few guy ropes to the folding knuckles on each pole to prevent them from collapsing in a strong wind. Something like the 4pk COI guy ropes are a cheap fix, with a few sand pegs to keep them in place, check out the guy ropes here, and we have sand pegs here. ~ Ben
Really easy to assemble and take down, surprisingly large and spacious but light and easy to carry. Also, super friendly customer service and speedy delivery. Thanks!
Good for sun shelter. Fails in wind - not strong enough so just sways and collapses.
You're right - when the wind really picks up, it can struggle a bit. However, if you tie each corner knuckle down with guy ropes (to some serious sand pegs), along with throwing sand into the outside pockets - it performs quite well in windy conditions. I hope this helps, Laine :)
Easy to set up and take down, great shelter at a good price. It's very refreshing dealing with a company like Snowys that takes pride in great customer service. Well done to all at Snowys!
Very easy to set up. Great size for the whole family. Durable. All you will ever need in a beach shelter.
Great shelter/tent, good quality and simple to set-up and pack away. Had a minor issue with the way tent arrived, which Snowy's sorted out straight away
Very happy with this product after 18 months of use. Very effective in providing shade and mighty easy to put up and down. The storage sock is not quite as durable and mine has some minor tears along the seam. Overall, a very good product which is worth the money.
A great shelter for sun protection while still being able to enjoy the beach. The silver lining on the interior worked well in blocking the burning sun. Lots of interior room for sitting. Easy to pull out when assembling and easy to fold up. Used sand to anchor the outside side pockets and had no problems with a light wind. Great to be able to angle the tent so a young child could play on the beach in the shade. Tent was delivered promptly within a few days of ordering.
The shelter is great, easy to put up (even though I am short I still managed on my own) and easy to take down again and best of all it fits back in the bag!!It is nice and roomy and we got the guy ropes in case of it being windy (which it was) It is also stays nice and cool in the shelter even when really hot at the beach. I would highly recommend this. We used it for 10 days at Tuross Head.
Recommend, so easy to put up and pack up
Is their an internal pocket where you can store a phone and a small speaker like a Beats Pill for music?
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!
Will this provide covering for more than 4 people?
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.
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.
I'm agree with Lisa. Would love to have a front awning on the shelter.
Want a tent that can have three walls
Is this product waterproof?
How well do these shelters perform when the wind picks up?
