Where Can You Set Up a Tent on a Beach?

Save

Staying on a beach is a unique way to experience camping. Sleeping on the sand is more comfortable than sleeping on tree roots and rocks. There are a few points to keep in mind when deciding where to pitch your tent on a beach.

Safety

  • Pitch your tent 20 feet away from the high-tide line.

Comfort

  • Bring a shovel to level the ground where you choose to pitch your tent. Remove any rocks, seashells or items that will affect your comfort while sleeping.

Convenience

  • Spread out and anchor a large tarp in front of the tent entrance. Use this area to brush sand off yourself before entering the tent.

Weather Protection

  • Bring a tarp that is twice the size of your tent. Also bring poles that are 2 feet higher than the tent. Use the poles to raise the tarp over the tent. Angle the tarp so the back end is near the ground and the front end is over the tent. This adds extra protection from the rain and elements.

Keeping Dry

  • Use a shovel to dig a trench around the tarp's diameter. If it rains, this creates a space for the rain to drain into the ground and not seep into your tent.
