READ OUR FAQs
Why do I need an Ecotent?
Being light and compact, Ecotent combines comfort and portability with maximum sun protection for you to enjoy the beach with your family or friends. Trust us, you will really enjoy your Ecotent!
Does the Ecotent easy to set up?
Very easy! A person can set it up in 2 minutes. The set up requires no tools and no use of force. In fact, even children could do it, which they would certainly enjoy a lot! (It is recommended that only children from 10 years of age are allowed to set up the Ecotent, and always under the supervision of parents or guardians).
Does the Ecotent wind resistant?
The Ecotent is extremely resistant to wind. You’ll never need to run after your parasol ever again! These are our tips to ensure resistance to severe wind:
- Fill the anchoring bags to their full capacity with sand or other similar material. If you are on the beach, stick the bags into holes in the sand to achieve greater resistance.
- Remember to stretch the fabric well before positioning the support poles.
- Always position the first pole against the wind (a good indication is when the tent stands with only one pole in place) and then position the second.

Does the Ecotent is exclusively for use on the beach?
In fact, the Ecotent can be used just about everywhere when you need some shade. Just fill the anchoring bags with some material that is heavy enough to hold it in place and keep it up, such as stones, green coconut shells, bags filled with water, soil, sand, tree trunks etc.
How many people fit under the Ecotent?
We recommend Ecotent Aloha for up to 4 people and Ecotent Mahalo for up to 8 people. But they can accommodate more, depending on the belongings you store within it and the comfort level you are looking for.
How can the Ecotent provide shade all day long?
As the sun moves, all you have to do is reposition one pole or both, that way redesigning the tent and the direction of the shade. Click here for some set up suggestions.
What kind of sun protection does the Ecotent provide?
The Ecotent offers the maximum sun protection against ultraviolet rays UVA and UVB, since its fabric features UPF 50+ protection (learn more here), in accordance with ARPANSA’s strict guidelines in Australia. (ARPANSA stands for Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency).
Will the Ecotent loose its sun protection capacity over time?
No. The Ecotent retains its sun protection properties throughout its lifespan. After much research, we have selected the Amni® fabric, developed by Rhodia in Brazil, for its lifetime protection against UV rays, and also for being resistant to exposure to salt water and chlorine, as well as for repelling sand, which facilitates its handling.
Why did you choose only dark colours? Doesn’t that make it hotter under the Ecotent?
The darker the tent, the higher the protection. For that reason, we have chosen dark colours. That being said all of our fabrics provide maximum solar protection (UPF 50+).
Thanks to Ecotent’s unique design, which resembles a kite or a hang-glider, the wind blows constantly under the fabric, stopping the tent from accumulating heat. No heat at all!

How portable is the Ecotent? Can I carry it on a plane?
The Ecotent was designed to be taken wherever you go. It comes with a carry bag that allows it to be transported everywhere and you can take it on the plane as hand luggage or check it in as luggage. (We recommend that you pack your Ecotent into a rucksack or suitcase when sending as luggage, in order to prevent damage to the fabric.)
The Ecotent easily fits into rucksacks, suitcases, bags etc and it is available in 2 sizes:
- Aloha – Weighing 2.2kg and measuring 50cm x 15cm x 15cm (L x W x H).
- Mahalo – Weighing 3.2kg and measuring 55cm x 15cm x 15cm (L x W x H).
