Spending the day on the beach can be fun and exciting, but it’s all fun and games until you get sunburned and can’t put on and take off your clothes without screaming. Protecting your skin from the harmful UV rays should be your top priority during the scorching summer in Australia. Apart from using a quality SPF, you also need to make sure there is a thick shade under which you can hide when the sun is too hot. Entering the world of umbrellas.

Rio Brands 6′Sunshade Umbrella
This is a beach umbrella for people who are on a limited budget but still want to enjoy good sun protection. It has aluminium undercoating that provides sun protection with SPF 100+ and comes in a range of cute colours that make it easy to spot in the sea of beach umbrellas. Its height is adjustable but you should keep in mind that this basic umbrella is not designed for everyday use. For more frequent usage, you should consider some more heavy duty umbrella that is built to withstand heavy use. Another downside of this inexpensive umbrella is its size. It has a capacity to shade one person only so if you are going with your partner or family this is not the umbrella you will want to take with you.
