A Guide to the Best Beach and Camping Windbreaks

Make your own little private area on the beach

Even on the best of our summer days the wind can be quite strong, whether you’re lying on the beach, having a picnic in your garden or camping, a windbreak will significantly reduce wind power heading your way.  Making sure you have the best windbreak for the beach or camping will ensure a bit of wind won’t ruin your day.

Windbreaks are also used to provide privacy, shield for BBQs on the beach and shade from the sun, the same way a beach tent would.  It’ll also stop your lighter items from being blown away by the wind.  Some manufacturer’s claim one size fits all, although windbreaks for camping are different to windbreaks for the beach, we’ll explain all this right here.  However, the latter does hold some truth in the manufacturer’s claim.

Although you can rent a windbreak whilst you’re on the beach, you only would have to rent it 2-3 times before you can buy your own one, so you might as well buy your own windbreak for the beach in this case.  Its lightweight and portability means you can easily carry it to the beach and not have to fork out for the inflated rent prices.

 

How to Choose the Best Beach and Camping Windbreak

Whether you’re searching for the best beach windbreak or best camping windbreak, there are several factors you should take into account that’ll ensure you make the right choice. 

Windbreak for Camping or Windbreak for the Beach?

Camping windbreaks use guy ropes and pegs for support

First and foremost, the best windbreak for you will largely depend on what activities you will need it for.  Beach windbreak poles are usually made from wood, the sharp ends are longer as this provides more stability once it’s hammered into the sand by a rubber mallet.  As the poles are longer, it will also provide great support when inserted in soil, however the ends might not be sharp enough.

Whereas camping windbreak poles are usually made from either fibreglass or steel with sharper ends.  This makes it easier to dig into the soil, it must then be supported by pegging guy ropes to the ground attaching it to the windbreak.  Since pegging guy ropes into the sand will provide zero support and the sharp end of the poles are not long enough, this wouldn’t be suitable as a beach windbreak.

The latter option can also be used as a garden windbreak only if you have grass, this makes it suitable for picnics, sunbathing or any other garden activities.

 

Features

Poles – More poles would give you more choice on what shape you want your windbreak to be, you can even enclose yourself to gain more privacy.  To work out how many panels there’ll be, you just have to minus one from the total number of poles.

Height x width – The height would usually be the height of the poles rather than the panels itself.  This would concern beach windshields more since the poles are longer.

Window panels – Having windows on the panels will still give you wind protection but at the same time you can still see what’s happening around you.

Carry bag included – As there are more parts associated with a camping windbreak, a carry bag is usually included which keeps everything altogether.  Windbreaks for the beach have no additional parts so usually a carry bag won’t be included.
