We rent beach chairs, umbrellas, and binoculars for $6 each per day. Our umbrellas, unlike those you would buy yourself, are commercial grade. They BIG and are made of wood, canvas, fiberglass, and stainless steel. They are heavy-duty and fully protect you from the sun’s rays coming from above–though you may want to invest in some sunscreen to protect you from the rays reflected off of the water!

For the adventurous types, we rent boogie boards and skim boards in various sizes for $6 each per day. We also sell a selection of high-quality boards in various sizes inside the shop.

We rent small coolers for $6/day. We also sell a selection of cooler bags and backpacks inside, if you’re looking for something more stylish.

    Do I need a reservation to rent beach gear?

  2. Kim says:

    Are your umbrellas at the beach were we pick them up or do we have to get them there ourselves from your shop?

    • Cynthia says:

      You’ll want to stop by the shop here on Maddox Boulevard on your way to the beach. No commercial activity is allowed over on Assateague, where the beach is, so we’ll see you at the shop! 🙂

    Do you sell or rent supplies for crabbing and clam rakes.

    • Cynthia says:

      Hi Donna,

      We don’t, but I can tell you where to find them! Down Maddox Blvd., there is a shop called Capt. Steve’s Bait and Tackle. They have all the fishing, clamming and crabbing supplies you could ever dream of–including bait!

    Do u rent bike helmets?

  7. Kristen says:

    Do you have any beach chairs to rent that are full length lounge chairs that you can lie down in?

    • Cynthia says:

      Unfortunately, we just have the standard beach chairs that recline–none that fold completely flat.

  8. Lauren says:

    How close are you to the beach? Worried about how far we’ll have to carry rented beach gear…

    • Cynthia says:

      Hi Lauren! You will want to drive to and park at the beach. The beach is 3 miles from the nearest commercial building (us) and you can’t even buy a soda over on the wildlife refuge where the beach is located.

  9. Susi says:

    Can you rent umbrellas for the week? If yes how much per week?

  10. Paul says:

    How hard is it to bury the beach umbrella so it will not fall over?

    • Cynthia says:

      Folks do it every day. Having a sturdy wooden pole helps a lot, and all of ours have sturdy wooden poles.

  11. Milan says:

    I have a small car. Will the umbrella fit inside of a small vehicle?

  12. Sarah says:

    Do you have beach chairs with backpack straps so that it will be easy to bike with them?

  13. Kayla says:

    Do you have beach wagons? Beach tents? Thank you!

  14. Jacqueline says:

    Should I be worried that you might run out of umbrellas to rent the week of July 4th?

    Hello!
    We will be making our way to Chincoteague for the first time this Friday! We are a family of 5 and are looking forward to our first beach vacation in 8 years! Would love to make the most of our week. Do you have any recommendations for eateries and the best activities to do? We are really happy that we don’t have to haul beach umbrellas and chairs and can rent from you.
    Any info on how to make this one of our best vacations ever would be greatly appreciated! Also, we are confused as to whether or not we will see horses since the round-up is taking place this week. Can you clarify?
    Thanks! See you on the 28th!

      First of all– the ponies! They will swim back to Assateague on Friday morning so they will be in their wild state during your stay. The best way to see them is on a boat cruise with Daisey’s Island Cruises. Captain Hunter is even one of the famous Saltwater Cowboys if you are interested in the ponies and want to request him! If you have young kids (5-9ish) they might get more out of Captain Barry’s Back Bay Cruises. It’s a hands-on, feet wet kind of tour where ponies, island culture, and wildlife are not the priority.

      There’s a great selection of eateries here on Chincoteague. My personal favorites are The Village for a nice sit-down seafood dinner, Captain Zack’s for a take-out seafood dinner, Sandy Pony Donuts for breakfast, Lily’s Little Mexico across the street for something spicy, and Famous for Pizza & Subs!! Have a great visit and we’ll see you this weekend.
