Even though it’s the end of the season, the sun doesn’t let up. Better be prepared then!
For lovers of September and late August holidays, ProduceShop has selected the best beach parasols; models for every climate and occasion, to end the summer in style.
Choosing the right time of year for your holidays is quite a challenge; while the hustle and bustle of June and the heat of July attract many, there are equally as many who prefer more “relaxed” moments. August, however, is exactly the opposite, and prices before mid-month become prohibitive; traveling in this period is more a necessity linked to work needs. But for those who have the choice, late August and September are definitely the best times; semi-deserted beaches, village festivals, palpable calm and perfect weather.
Is it a period without sunshine though? Not at all! That’s why it’s better to have good beach parasols for the end of the season holidays too; coming back to the office or school with a sunburn is certainly not the best way to end your holiday!
A quick guide: what to consider?
Like any smart purchase, it’s best to consider a few factors before buying your holiday parasols. There are many different characteristics to consider, and in this article we want to list the main ones for you, followed by our personal ranking of the 10 best beach parasol models, selected from thecatalogue.
So remember to check out:
- Materials: aluminium and steel for the pole, cotton and synthetic fabric for the cover; the choice is purely personal. Some models have steel or fiberglass reinforced bars, as well as plastic joints.
- UV protection: depending on the material of the canopy and the diameter, make sure they are certified (type UPF 158) against ultraviolet rays (uvA and uvB).
- Mounting: if you choose parasols such as those from the Girafacile® brand, with their helical screw tip and patented tube and crank handle, mounting your umbrella will be quick and easy and will ensure maximum stability. At least you can think about relaxing on the beach in your sunbed and nothing else!
- Windproof: certain models have a windproof vent, which is especially useful at the end of the season and in specific areas.
- Extras: we’re talking about tents that can be mounted on the parasol for more privacy, or assembled and folding models for easier transport, as well as bags and straps for carrying.
