If it only came with a couple of external pockets which could be filled and buried in the sand it would be great for the beach too
Brilliant product at a fab price
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I bought this after getting horribly sun burnt at a festival beginning of july (despite using loads of sun cream). I choose this one as it fitted the next festivals height limit (well near enough!) and was a fab price, especially with the free click and collect. I didn't put the tent up till we got to the festival - watched the video online though - and it was very simple to put up. It rained on and off during the whole festival but we were snug in the sun tent and it kept us really dry. We put our bags in the triangle bit at the back and sat by just inside the opening - it was snug with two adults but comfortable. I managed to pack it back up in minutes before the encore of the human leagues set! and I managed to get it back in the bag, which wasn't bad as it was pitch black apart from the stage lights and a bit of side lighting. It is very light weight and fitted easily in my normal sized back pack - and there was loads of room for my picnic etc.. One of the best purchases I have made in a long time.
Broke after 2.5 months / 6 uses max
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
The tent pole has split despite light usage. This product is not fit for purpose. The company won't exchange as I don't have a receipt (despite it not being sold elsewhere and a obvious Decathlon product). I do not recommend. Although would be pleased if Decathlon now offer to replace for me.

Excellent beach tent! So quick and easy to use, plenty of shade to sit in. Small and compact to fit in my 10kg luggage on board flights. Recently used in Dubai where temperatures were 37 degrees, this little beauty was a God send! We'll recommended

Great purchase. Comes with sand pegs which you need. Amazing price for such a good tent. And so compact too. Quechua is a great brand too.
Easy to put up, and away. Compact.

Purchased this to take abroad as beach shelter for toddler. Did not dissapoint- small and light when packed away, barely took up any space in suitacase. Very easy to assemble and pack away, both can be done in minutes. Provides good shade coverage. Popular product, there was always another one somewhere nearby on the beach! Not sure how it would hold up in windy/wet conditions but fulfilled our requirements.
Great price, easy to assemble, seems durable
