Why do I need a Beach Umbrella?

Our Shady Characters beach umbrellas are a must-have for anyone who plans to spend time at the beach. Not only do they provide safe shade from the sun's harmful UV rays, but they also offers protection from wind and (in New Zealand's case!) the odd shower of rain. In this post, we'll explore the many benefits of owning a Shady Characters beach umbrella and why it's an essential item for anyone who loves spending time at the beach.

One of the most obvious benefits of a beach umbrella is the protection it provides from the sun's harmful UV rays. With the hole in the Ozone layer above us, the sun's rays can cause sunburn, skin damage, and even skin cancer if you're not protected. A beach umbrella will provide you and your family shade and block out a significant portion of the sun's rays, reducing your risk of sun damage.

Another benefit of a beach umbrella is the protection it provides from wind and rain. Our beach umbrellas are designed to be sturdy and durable, so they can withstand a little bit of wind and rain that often occurs during a Kiwi summer! They'll keep you and your belongings dry, even in the occasional shower.

A beach umbrella also offers privacy, especially when you're at the beach with a group of friends or family. With a beach umbrella, you'll have a designated beach sanctuary that you can call your own, where you can relax and enjoy your time at the beach without feeling exposed or on display. Our beach umbrellas also come with a folding pole which lets you either angle the umbrella to suit the sun or detach it entirely to setup your own low-lying beach shade.

Our Shady Characters beach umbrellas also come in different designs and colours, making it easy for you to find one that suits your needs and preferences. Our beach umbrellas are designed for both larger groups or couples and individuals.

Another important aspect of beach umbrellas is portability, all of our beach umbrellas come with carrying cases (tote bag style), which makes it easy to transport your umbrella to and from the beach. This is especially important if you're planning to spend the whole day at the beach, as you'll want to be able to take your umbrella with you when you leave for lunch or go for a swim.

Our beach umbrellas are an affordable and practical investment that can be used for many years in the New Zealand sun. With proper care and maintenance, a beach umbrella can last for several seasons, making it a great value for the money.
