The chain and hitch pin as well as the collar bolts on the Barrier Reef Model now feature stainless steel to prevent rusting and corrosion.





Commercial Grade Three Piece Hub Designnew-hub.jpeg

A common problem with typical beach umbrellas is canopy inversion. This is caused when the excessive force of the wind pulls the ribs away from the hub system. The average pulling force necessary to disengage a rib from a typical beach umbrella hub is about 40 lbs of pulling force. Our new three piece specially designed hub system has been tested at over 400 lbs of pulling force. We identified the weak link and made it stronger.




Improved Warranty Coverage

We are so confident in the quality of this umbrella system that we are covering every single Barrier Reef Umbrella System with a 3-Year Warranty on the Umbrella Frame and a LIFETIME Warranty on the Umbrella Base. This is in addition to the popular beachBUB 3-Year Protection Plan!

Canopy Tension Adjustment System

One of the major new additions in the most recent model of the Barrier Reef beachBUB Beach Umbrella System is the ability to adjust the tension of the umbrella canopy. We noticed that many other brands of beach umbrellas often struggle with ribs over time poking through the canopy, so we have reinforced the rib pockets on the umbrella canopy and added a T-shaped bracket inside each pocket. This new bracket prevents the rib from wearing on the canopy. It also allows us to insert a small plastic spacer plug in each rib pocket. These spacer plugs can be used to adjust the overall tension of the umbrella canopy. If your canopy is too tight and difficult to open, simply remove as many of the plugs as necessary to achieve the desired canopy tension. Likewise, if the canopy tension is too loose, simply add additional plugs in order to create more tension. (Additional plugs are provided and are located in the pocket of each carry bag.)

The beachBUB Umbrella Canopy is ONLY available in one color - Deep Ocean Blue. Please choose the color of your beachBUB Ultra Base. beachBUB Ultra Colors: Sky Blue, Canary Yellow and Citrus Green.

We Made the Bag Even Stronger

The Barrier Reef System now also includes reinforcement stitching at 11 different stress points on the oversized carry bag and the shoulder strap width has been increased and extra padding added. We’ve made the drawstring and button stop more heavy duty than ever.

The umbrella has been wind tested to 35 MPH so you'll never have to go without shade again. Also all beachBUB All In One Systems now come with the free 3-Year beachBUB Protection Plan.

How It Works

Prepare the Space

If the sand is really dry and powdery, start by brushing away the very top layer of dry sand to make a nice firm flat space for your umbrella base.

Lay the beachBUB flat onto the beach. Use the Sand Gopher Tool by inserting it into the sand through the center hole of the beachBUB. Push the Sand Gopher into the sand giving it a quarter turn twist as you go. Then simply pull the Sand Gopher out and it will remove a plug of sand. Fling the sand out of the Sand Gopher and repeat until you have a hole that is 11 inches deep. Insert the bottom pole through the center hole of the beachBUB up to the orange label. Connect 2 wings to form a pouch. Fill the base halfway with sand. Attach the 3rd wing to form the pyramid base. Completely fill the base with sand. Insert your umbrella into the base, sit down and enjoy a relaxing stress free day on the beach.

3 Year Protection Plan

The beachBUB Protection Plan is included with your purchase.

The BPP covers all damage and loss. It even covers damage to the umbrella in the unlikely event of an umbrella tipping over due to the base not being completely filled. Check out complete details here.

    Excellent Umbrella System

    Posted by David Strothmann on Mar 28th 2020

    I bought my BeachBub umbrella almost 2 years ago. I live on the Atlantic Coast of Florida. With this umbrella high winds are not a problem. While others are chasing their umbrellas down the beach, I don't even have to adjust mine all day. This umbrella is well designed, very sturdy, yet is easy to carry. It's the perfect umbrella for the beach. Just ordered two sets of tray table and can't wait to add them to the umbrella system.

    Good, strong beach umbrella

    Posted by Kerry on Feb 25th 2020

    Great design, well thought through & innovative. The fabric is really strong and does not falter in the wind. When on the beach we had a number of people looking at the design and because of the wind other umbrellas needed to be taken down or did now down. This is the best beach umbrella, look no further. I would highly recommend.

    Great not to chase an umbrella down the beach

    Posted by Unknown on Nov 6th 2019

    Now all I need to chase is grandchildren. . Very refreshing to get a great product that does what it says to does. I have put it up four straight days since I bought it. It is very easy to put up and take down and rock solid in the wind. It may be a little more expensive then many of the cheesy products available on line but worth every penny. I recommend it highly

    I added a brush and a plug for the end of the gopher to my bag so l can remove the sand from everything before putting them back in the bag.

    Beach Bub Barrier Reef Model

    Posted by Tom Sharrard on Oct 22nd 2019

    We love our Beach Bub Umbrella. In fact we just bought a second one to take to the beach when we have guests from up North. The Umbrella is extremely sturdy - handles any wind gusts and the 50 rating on screening out the sun keeps us cool and safe from getting burned! We can't believe the number of people that approach us at the beach to ask what kind of umbrella it is and where they can buy it.

    Have used 2x with no issues. Feels extremely secure and we saw 2 umbrellas “fly” but we were secure. Wish there was a video on how to angle

    Umbrella system

    Posted by robert on Oct 11th 2019

    I had people asking me about the umbrella even before I got it out of the box . He said he was tired of buying the ones on the island and was in the hunt for a new one.. We used it and the set was simple and very quick Love the stability and the when the sun rolled across the sky we just tilted the umbrella, A little jiggle of the pole was all it took. Had a lot of people watching. While setting up. I’m sure there will be a few more sold to the island on Maui. One note this is bigger than even I was expecting. But this is the last beach umbrella I will need to buy. Great product. Thinking you need to design some awesome beach chairs.
