Sunbeds on beaches

Having booked a flight, we're now trying to find the best hotel or rental for next April. My ideal wish list was a touristy area so we can visit restaurants on foot, ocean view, kitchenette in room: - budget is no more than $200 per night so most of the luxury resorts on west coast are too expensive. I thought I'd hit gold with the Coral Sands resort and love the sound of St Lawrence, but reviews say there are no umbrellas on the beach. I'm very farr-skinned and always sit in the shade on the beach - and I like to spend some time on the beach not just round the pool! I know this sounds fussy, but I'd love to know if there are public beaches with sunbeds/brollies for rent, or any affordable hotels with such a private beach area. Perhaps this is asking too much for the budget?

What sort of price are you looking at for two beds and one parasol please.

The prices are usually quite standard.

A simple lounger (plastic ribs) is $5 Bds at Rockley, a parasol is $10 Bds. A solid lounger with a pad is $10 Bds.

If you go to Rockley Beach save your money for a parasol and just get a lounger and sit under the trees, you'll still get quite a bit of sun reflecting off the sand and sea.

I'm always amazed at the amount of people laying in the sun, roasting and increasing their chance of melanoma. Use a high SPF factor, which helps.

Thank you, I do need some shade, but love comfort too.

Canby,

Couldn't agree more. Any amount of a tan is damaged skin.
