The Hurley Beach Umbrella comes in four colorful patterns like Aqua. The two-way tilt design keeps you cool no matter where the sun is overhead.
The base of the pole is a sand screw, making it easy to twist the beach umbrella securely into the ground.

The Impact Canopy is reminiscent of parachute day in elementary school, and beyond being nostalgic it’s a high performing beach umbrella. The canopy measures 8-feet and features UPF 50+ UV protection fabric.
The two-way tilt design helps to keep the sun rays out with plenty of shade. The umbrella stays put in the sand due to the twisted anchor and the canopy has a vented top to allow for airflow and prevent the umbrella from flipping inside out.
Sometimes, you’ll want a heavy duty umbrella to withstand high winds and unpredictable weather. Another attractive feature with this umbrella is that it has an auto-tilt feature to keep the sun out even when it’s not directly above.

Talk a stroll down the beach and you're bound to see at least one Shibumi Shade on the horizon. It's not your average beach umbrella, but TikTokers rave about the wind-powered shade.

It's so popular, you're limited to two Shibumi Shade beach umbrellas per order.
This affordable beach umbrella has plenty of admirable features: a UV-resistant canopy, the ability to tilt, and weighs less than six pounds.
