This is an interesting idea: a beach umbrella that can also be a beach shelter. We look at the Easy Camp Coast.
Our Score: 9.5/10
- The Easy Camp Coast is a great idea for some wind and sunshade on the beach.
The not so good
- Not as big as a full sized beach shelter, but it does mean you don't have to take both.

The Coast is a quirky little concept from Easy Camp, a beach umbrella with the addition of side walls. Ok, that may sound a bit strange, so how does it work?
The umbrella has velcro around the sides, which attaches to the groundsheet.
There are pockets on the flysheet which you can fill with sand to add more stability.
A couple of sand pegs are provided too.
I found it very easy to set up by myself, taking minutes, much quicker than setting up a windbreak.
a lot quicker than setting up a windbreak
If the wind changes, it's straightforward to adjust quickly.
Now it was a very calm day when I tested it, so can't comment yet on how it handles more blustery conditions.
The most obvious use for the Coast is at the beach, but it could also be of use at a campsite to provide a bit of shade. The umbrella can just be used on its own and come with a pole to allow you to do this.
The bright contemporary colour adds a bit of fun to a beach, garden, camping adventure.
