Beach Hammocks
Beach living poses particular challenges to finding the right hammock because of the damaging elements your hammock will have to contend with. Saltwater, winds, and damp will all wear on your hammock, providing challenges in keeping it in the best possible condition.

If you are considering an open weave rope hammock, your best bet is a polyester weave, as this will hold up better and tolerate the saltwater better than cotton. You may also want to consider going with a Mayan style hammock without spreaders, as wood also deteriorates more quickly in the salty air.

Other hammocks designed specifically for the beach use a tight weave that resembles fabric. Each of these uses threading of polyester coated with a protective vinyl finish that protects your hammock from the elements and sheds water, allowing it to dry quickly. This material is soft and comfortable yet lightweight, and is breathable so that you will not feel clammy or hot when reclining in it. The special coating also protects the hammock from the harsh rays of the sun so that it keeps its color year after year. The material is tear-resistant and easy-care by simply by hosing it off!

The coated polyester hammocks come in a wonderful array of styles and colors, including nautical stripes and soft, muted prints. There is a pattern to suit every taste and match any of your other beach furnishings. You can also add accessories to your beach hammock with a matching hammock caddy to hold items like suntan lotion, sunglasses and that great paperback novel you will finally get to read. Enjoy yourself in your hammock while you listen to the sounds of pounding surf in your beach hammock and you may never go home.
