If you're planning a trip to the beach this weekend, you'll probably want to relax, unwind, read a book or just listen to the waves. And I'm guessing you'll want a comfortable, lightweight foldable beach chair to sit on. 

SHOP: The best beach essentials checklist 

Fear not, I've just returned from a trip to Cornwall and I can confidently say I've found the best beach chair around. And they didn't break the bank!

What's so great about the Tommy Bahama beach chair? 

1. It's portable 

This beach chair folds down with ease and can be carried with a top handle or can be worn on the back like a rucksack. I carried it both ways and it was super light and super easy to carry around.

2. It's comfortable 

I was slightly worried, it doesn't look super sturdy does it? But it really is. My 80-year-old dad also found it very comfortable to sit on. Thanks to the padded pillow on the headrest, you can catch some Zzzs on the beach (but don't forget your sunscreen!). 

3. It reclines 

The chair reclines all the way back as well, so if you're a sun worshipper you'll be in heaven.

4. The nifty storage 

Probably the best bit about the foldable beach chair - the impressive storage. You've got a cup holder, a phone holder, an ice bag on the back and a big compartment that will fit your must-haves such as a beach towel and your book. As someone who doesn't travel light, I loved this feature.

Honestly, my family and I had so many people ask us where we got them, which is why I wanted to share with you just how good they are. 

And let's face it, life's too short to be lying down on a towel on the beach.
