This Best-selling Beach Tent Is 55% Off at Amazon


Travel + Leisure / Tyler Roeland

When it comes to beach days, a tent is the perfect way to find respite from the sun’s harsh rays. Travel + Leisure recently tested several models to find the best beach canopies out there and gave the Oileus XL Beach Tent a rare perfect score — and you can now snag it ahead of Amazon Prime Day for an unbeatable price. 

We love how this highly rated beach tent is lightweight, easy to set up, has a UPF of 50+ to protect you from harmful sun rays, and is waterproof in case you get caught in a rainstorm. Plus, an extra-long ground cover helps keep sand away from the inside of the tent and provides more room for stretching out. All that beach convenience can be yours before the retailer’s big Prime Day sales event officially begins on July 11. 


To buy:, $45 (originally $100)

Want some privacy at the beach? The Oileus XL has you covered; you can velcro the ground cover to the top of the tent when you need a moment to change out of a wet swimsuit before the drive home or deal with a dirty diaper. 

The tent’s UPF 50+ rating means it blocks out 98 percent of the sun’s rays, and the two windows let you further control airflow and temperature. “I am in South Florida and the sun can be brutal, but this tent definitely keeps it several degrees cooler and the little windows provide a nice cross breeze to enjoy,” one shopper wrote.  

At 91.2 inches by 45 inches by 45 inches, it’s made to fit four people comfortably, and it only weighs a mere 4 pounds. Best of all, the pop-up design means you don’t have to waste any time on assembly before enjoying your beach day. “I love that this came in and all I had to do was take it out of the carrying bag it comes with and unfold it,” one reviewer raved. “It goes up very quickly, with no extra [poles] to put together or anything to assemble which adds to the convenience.”


To buy:, $65 (originally $100)

This tent is all about truly making life a beach. Two mesh pockets keep you organized while a carrying case with backpack straps frees up your hands for transport. It also comes in a wide range of colors, including pink and khaki. Almost 5,000 satisfied buyers have given it a perfect rating on Amazon.


To buy:, $60 (originally $100)
