Because kicking back on the beach is great, but kicking back on the beach without the lumps, bumps and sandy bums is even better.
The beach-sleeping baskets – known as Schlafstrandkörbe – were created by the Mensch Foundation in Schleswig-Holstein and just took out the “best touristic innovation” at the German Tourism Awards.
The beds can be found on beaches along the country’s Baltic coast and at a spacious 2.40 metres wide and 1.30 metres high, they offer a new level of comfort for shoreline sunning.
Plus, if you’ve enjoyed your beach day so much that you want to stay a little longer, your rental covers the night too. Each completely weatherproof basket comes sheets, blankets, pillows, a torch and a key to the ‘sanitary building’ nearby.
Oh, and spectacular beachfront views.
