Sure, packing a chair for the beach is an extra effort, but the reward is tenfold when you can lean back to read your latest novel while watching the waves or gather in a circle to toast to your favorite summer rosé. Not to mention beach bonfires are always best appreciated from the comfort of a beach chair that offers a prime seat angle for s'mores roasting. 

Just think about it—not getting sand everywhere while trying to flip a page to your favorite magazine, being able to seamlessly doze in and out of a peaceful beach slumber while looking at the waves, and being able to eat your carefully prepared picnic without sitting on the ground—yes, beach chairs are a game-changer that will stretch your hours of sunrays tenfold. Convinced? Here are the best beach chairs on the market this summer.
