User Experience


Portability: This LittleLife beach shelter is an excellent portable family beach shelter. It is amazingly lightweight (just 5 pounds and 8 ounces) and with the poles collapsed and the fabric folded up is a compact package (21 x 6 x 6 inches packed size) that fits into the provided carry bag with shoulder straps.

When folded up and packed into the carry bag, it will fit in a tight space in your car and is easy to carry to the setup point even when juggling kids and a beach bag. It is also easy to bring along when going on a beach vacation, as it will easily fit in a suitcase.

Set-Up: This beach shelter has glowing reviews for just how easy and quick it is to put up and takedown. It comes with three poles and the canopy fabric is designed with tubes for the poles to slide into. All you have to do is put together the poles, carefully push them into their pockets, bend the poles into place, and secure the shelter using the tent pegs it comes with.

This process takes 5 to 10 minutes and is easy enough for one person to erect it up in a calm environment. With a strong breeze blowing, putting it up and taking it down might require two pairs of hands. We recommend setting this tent up in the backyard for practice so it will be a breeze to put up by the water.

The takedown is at a moment’s notice as well. Just unhook and remove the poles from their sleeves, collapse them down, fold the tent fabric, and pack everything in the carry bag. The carry bag is roomy enough so fitting the shelter inside isn’t a frustrating task.

Room: This is a top-rated family beach shelter for how spacious it is. It is way bigger than the photos suggest. It provides a 67 x 67 x 43 inches shelter where 2-3 adults and a couple of kids can fit comfortably with all their beach/picnic gear.  It also stands high enough for kids to stand up and adults to sit down with plenty of headroom and change comfortably.

Sturdiness: One of the qualities that make this LittleLife tent the best shelter for use at the beach is just how sturdy and stable it is. The geodesic design makes this a high-strength beach tent that can withstand strong winds. The fiberglass poles are heavy-duty and the shelter is constructed in such a way that it does not allow wind to get in. For extra protection when strong gusts of wind are blowing, the tent is equipped with deep sand pockets you can fill with sandbags or stones to weigh it down and ensure it stays put.

Protection from the Elements: The LittleLife beach shelter is the perfect shelter to escape to for protection from all kinds of harsh elements. The tent fabric blocks the sun’s harsh rays and offers UPF 50 sun protection. As for wind and rain protection, it is a great shelter in all but extreme weather. With the door zipped closed, the shelter is windproof and stays calm and warm when the outside is windy. It is also a great shelter from rain showers and sea spray.

Ventilation: To ensure it doesn’t become hot and stuffy, the LittleLife beach shelter is open-fronted and equipped with a mesh panel that allows air to circulate without letting in wind and sand. The inside stays cool and comfortable and you won’t feel like you’re about to bake even when the sun is unbearably hot on the outside.

If it is hot and windy as well and you need to zip the door closed to block the wind, the double-zip design allows you to leave the top section unzipped to allow air to circulate without wind and sand getting in.
