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. Cynthia says:

    Nope! Just stop by. See you soon!

  3. 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?

  4. 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! 🙂

  5. Donna says:

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

  6. 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!

  7. Abby says:

    Do you rent paddle boards?

  8. Rich says:

    Do you rent cornhole boards?

  9. Cynthia says:

    Nope–sorry! Haven’t heard of anyone on the island who does.

  10. Cynthia says:

    Nope, sorry. You might try one of the camp grounds.

  11. Jeremy says:

    Do u rent bike helmets?

  12. Cynthia says:

    Yes! $1 per day

  13. Kristen says:

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

  14. Cynthia says:

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

  15. Lauren says:

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

  16. 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.

  17. Susi says:

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

  18. Paul says:

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

  19. Cynthia says:

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

  20. Cynthia says:

    $42 for the week

  21. Milan says:

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

  22. Sarah says:

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

  23. Cynthia says:

    We do! But we only have a few of them so availability is limited.

  24. Cynthia says:

    Honestly, it depends on the vehicle, and how many people are in it! Stop by and find out 🙂

  25. Kayla says:

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

  26. Cynthia says:

    We do not. You might try Chincoteague Island Outfitters on East Side.

  27. Jacqueline says:

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

  28. Cynthia says:

    We don’t typically run out of umbrellas, but it is always a possibility.

  29. Kasey says:

    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.

    Will you change the rear tire (I will provide the tire) on a 10-speed road bike? Now that City Bikes is closed there appears to be no where else to do this closer than Salisbury.

  32. Cynthia says:

    Sorry, we can’t do any repairs at all! Insurance nixed it.

  33. Jennifer says:

    We would like to rent 2 beach chairs and possibly an umbrella for 3 days (fri thru sat) do we need to make a reservation for this ahead of time, is there a discount for multiple days? Thank you!

The official bird of Chincoteague, the Mosquito, is a major consideration for outside activities on the islands.  Be prepared!

Chincoteague and Assateague have several excellent hiking & biking trails.

Can I rent a bicycle for a whole week?  What about 20 minutes?  Should I take bug spray?
