Is it really summer if you're not relaxing on the beach with a cold beverage in hand? We'll wait. The beach is the epitome of summer fun, and while we love a beach blanket for sunbathing on our stomachs, we also love a good beach chair to keep our cheeks off the ground. While a good chair elevates the whole beach experience, you might shudder at the thought of having to lug another item around — so we've gathered beach chairs that are lightweight, can be carried around like a backpack, and contain special pockets for sunscreen, speakers, and other beach essentials.

The best beach chairs are durable, easy to carry, and comfortable to sit in. Whether you're looking for a high beach chair that sits well above the ground, a low beach chair that rests above the sand, a wooden beach chair that reminds you of a tropical vacation, or a beach chair with a canopy to protect you from the sun, we've gathered the best beach chairs from every category to pick up before it's too late in the season. From "Shark Tank's" famous Sunflow beach chair to pieces from brands such as Rio and Nautica, these are the best and most comfortable beach chairs on the internet. Shop our top picks ahead.
