Floatables for the Beach

What could be more fun than taking in some of the world’s most beautiful beach views from atop a beach inflatable? If you’re planning on spending any time by the beach, then you need to pick up an inflatable pool float, and have some fun!

Today there are a variety of shapes, animals, and foods available, and are undoubtedly the trendiest accessory of the summer—sorry, sunglasses.

    Great products! I am looking for something for the beach to relax on in the water. Here in Australia, it is about that time! Gonna head over to the links now.

    Thank you!

    Great collection of floatables here and I particularly like the doughnut ring. These are fantastic gifts for kids and adults alike. Makes me really wish I had a nice big swimming pool in my back garden, but at least I live by the sea so I may invest in one of these for my nephew for next summer. Thanks

      For some reason Stefanie, the donuts are very popular. They are rather large, and you could actually have two people on one. I prefer to have my own space, and I like them to be roomy so this would be a good choice. Thank you for visiting BeachTravelDestinations.com.

    The fabric arm bands are great for helping kids get comfortable in the water and not worrying about drowning. They still don’t replace the fact that every parent needs to watch their kids all the time, but it alleviates some stress which is great! They are also very cheap and inexpensive, making them a perfect accessory for any pool or beach trip. With that said, I think I will order a couple of pair for our kids!  The price is right, and Speedo is always a good brand.  Thanks!

      You are very welcome Kyle, and yes, it does not replace every parent needing to keep a close watch on their little ones in the water.  I agree!  Thanks for reading about floatables for the beach!

    I was looking for some armbands for my daughter when I discovered your website. We booked a trip to Bali for Christmas 🙂 As a parent, it’s important to choose armbands that are reliable and that also provide full flotation support. She can swim but you are never careful enough!  The ‘Speedo Begin to Swim Fabric Arm Band’ seems like an excellent choice!  Thanks for simplifying our trip with this great post!

    We are going on vacation soon and have been looking to get some beach toys and inflatables. These are a great selection! Something for the whole family. Cute and fun, practical but fashionable too. For me, I like the Spring Float Recliner and the Appollo Lounge because I like to stretch out and relax on the water. These make me want to head to the water now for a nice de-stressing float! Since we are not heading out for about a month, I will go ahead and purchase the ones we want and just dream until we are on our vacation 🙂

    Hi Leahrae

    What a wonderful idea! The floatables are all so bright, and perfect for the beach!  We are heading to Hawaii this winter, and I have my eye on a couple of these to pack in the suitcase!   I remember putting armbands on my son … now it is time for the loungers for the parents 🙂  We are liking the Pink Flamingo!  Thank you for sharing!

    Hi Leahrae,

    Great floatable reviews!
    My children are almost adults today, but my sister has a cute little boy. I live near the sea, and she often comes to visit me, so we spend a lot of time on the beach. I really like the swim ways baby spring float sun canopy as he can enter his legs into the floatable and also because the cover protects him from the sun, which is fantastic!

    Is it easy to inflate?

    Thank you for this excellent post!

      It is a great floatable for the little ones for sure 🙂  I am thinking that your sisters little one will love this!  Yes, I think it is important to keep the sun off them.  I am glad you enjoyed reading about Floatables for the beach.  Thank you for taking the time to comment 🙂

    Hi!

    Good read and I like that you have found so many different products that can be used on the beach. There really is something for everyone.

    I’m 26 already, but I can’t deny that I love having fun with floatables on the waves. We love to bring a big air mattress to the beach and just float around on the waves with our friends. The thing that I have noticed, is that price pretty much means quality, because I used to buy a cheap mattress almost every summer and they pretty much did not last the whole summer. Two years ago I made a little bigger investment and I’m pretty sure that the quality mattress will last for another two years. 🙂

      I enjoy my floatables on the beach, who doesn’t 🙂 I agree that cheap is not always the best. I always go by the name actually. My son works in a surf shop, so we kind of know which ones will last, and which ones won’t. Thanks for reading!

    That Unicorn looks simply amazing. My wife and I are taking a trip this year to southern China right along the ocean front. I have been debating bringing something along to float around on because the beaches are gorgeous. I think I have found my preferred item. Great list!

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      The Unicorn is great because it is so big. I see this particular floatable at the beach every time I go (which is a lot since I live close to the beach)! Two adults can comfortably sit on it. Glad you found what you were looking for and thank you for visiting BeachTravelDestinations.com!

    We just got back from a beach holiday. We had one of those 2 person inflatable rafts in the waves catching 6 foot swells. These inflatables are too much fun to waste on the kids.
    Surfers have made this new thing in Bali called “the dock” check it out. It floats in the surf so you can walk on the water all the way out to the break.

      Oh wow Remy! I will check it out. Sounds like a lot of fun, but then so does Bali 🙂 Thanks for visiting and I look forward to you coming back when you start planning your next vacation 🙂

    How true. If I am going to a beach I will most definitely need a floating device. It took me years to get over Jaws though and I was a little fearful of being in a big body of water. LOL. These are some great items for hanging out on the beach. You have given me a great selection, and I think I love the lounger. That is the one for me!

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Ronnie, I have the lounger and I think I could lay in it all day everyday….well when I was back in Texas I did just that in my pool. I think it called my name everyday, and I got nothing done around the house. Thanks for visiting BeachTravelDestinations.com!

    Thia is a great list of super cute inflatables. I had no idea there is even such thing. I don’t know how to swim, these infatables will probably hep me in the future when I decide to learn how to swim. I have a nephew that loves water, I am planing to buy one for his birthday. I am bookmarking your site. I love your site, it is loaded with great information. Thank you for sharing!

    Leahrae floatables have certainly come along way in recent years. I am particularly curious about the large size, adult size floatables. Love the Unicorn – showing my son.

    Love the beach and love the beach/water lifestyle

      Yes, they have and the Unicorn is huge. I think you could probably fit 3 people on it. I am glad you enjoyed, and I know your son will certainly enjoy the Floatables for the beach 🙂
