Our Story

Revolutionizing outdoor fun

Otentik Sunshade™ have changed the way people have fun outdoors. The trick was developing a very simple and practical idea into an eco-friendly, simple product that is also beautiful to lay eyes on.

The idea was to create an effective, family sized beach tent that would be both easy to carry and easy to use. A product that would protect its users from harmful UV rays and be a joy to look at.

The perfect beach shade experience

From the get-go we set out to explore and develop every aspect of our product, until we were sure it was perfect. Every beach shade we produce at Otentik has to attain the following goals:

Practicality – easy to carry, setup and dismantle. Fits in carry on luggage.

Quality – provide years of faithful service and have no manufacturing flaws.

Efficiency – offer the highest possible UV protection*.

Aesthetic – chic sporty look that will turn heads.

No corners were cut, and hard work and perseverance have more than paid off.

*Regardless of the UV protection our products offer we strongly urge our beach tent users to fully protect themselves against the harmful rays of the sun and enjoy the rest.

Otentik beach tents sell themselves

Our beach shades are proof that good things require time and patience. Since our launch in 2011 we have been going full speed to catch up with demand. We want to know what you think about our beach tents, our lineup is constantly updated and more colors tested.

One for every occasion

Otentik beach tents come in a variety of sizes designed to meet the different needs of users. The original beach canopy was designed for a family of five, we have also added a two person mini that is ideal for crowded beaches, and the larger Big beach shade that will protect up to seven people.

Setup is a breeze

In accordance with the goals we set for ourselves our beach tents are fully assembled. All you need to do is lay them out, fill the anchors with sand, and pop-up the supporting poles. No muss no fuss, in minutes you are busy having fun, and when you are done you just reverse the process.

No more schlepping

All of our beach tents hover around the 1Kg (2 Lbs) mark and come in a sleek carry bag with straps. Throw it over your shoulder and you still feel like there’s nothing there. Going on vacation? Our beach tents fit easily into carry on luggage and still leave you room and weight for plenty of other things.
