The only thing worse than roughing it on a towel is lounging on a rickety beach chair. This summer will be different. This summer, we’ll be sitting like queens thanks to these three editor-approved chairs. Any time now, sun.
The 3 Best Beach Chairs on Amazon
Editors’ Pick: Tommy Bahama Backpack Cooler Chair
- Adjusts to five positions
- Upper storage pouch and lower insulated pouch
- Padded backpack straps for easy transport
If you’ve ever toted a chair, cooler, snacks, wireless speaker and books to the beach, you know how hard it is to juggle everything in one trip. One PureWow editor credits this beach chair with changing the game, saying, “The actual act of getting to the beach stresses me out, because there’s so much to carry and unpack. But this beach chair changed all of that. It has a pocket in the back for my books and speaker, plus an insulated compartment to keep waters and snacks cool without dragging a cooler behind me. It even has backpack straps, so all I have to do is throw it on my back and stroll onto the dunes. It’s magical.”
Best Value: Coleman Utopia Breeze Beach Sling Chair
- Relaxed back and low seat
- Seatback pocket and cup holder
- Comes with a carrying bag for easy transport
If you don’t want to shell out for a Tommy Bahama cooler chair, this one is a close second. It has a seatback pocket to store all your magazines, books and snacks, plus it’s lightweight and easy to carry. Grab a few of them, and you’ll always have one handy for that friend who shows up unprepared.
Splurge-worthy: Simpli Better Premium Beach Chair With Wheels
- Folds completely flat
- Can be converted into a cargo cart
- Weighs just 8 lbs., making it extremely easy to carry
You can tell a true beach bum by how equipped their chair is. And this one screams “expert”. It has wheels, a built-in canopy, a storage pocket and it’s long enough to put your feet up. Bonus: It even converts into a cargo cart, so you can tote your other supplies (ahem, that fully stocked lunch spread) like a true pro. Spend one beach day in this chair and you’ll never go back to anything else.
