Ideal for an evening beach picnic with the family. This heavy-duty hammock can suspend an entire small family above the soft sand of any seaside location. And if you can't find two trees then take a frame!Outdoor Cotton hammocks are built for heavy use or play in the great outdoors. They're pet and child friendly and are more weather resistant than our traditional cotton hammocks; the cotton string is 3 to 4 times thicker. Hanging these hammocks undercover will ensure a long life, however if hanging close to the edge of an undercover area we recommend using the hammock protector. If hung outside just unhook them when not in use.
