  • Lightweight compared to steel
  • rust-proof, whereas steel would rust
  • still sturdy enough for most of your beach needs
  • Absorbs shock and impact more effectively

Best Aluminum Beach Cart with Large Balloon Tires

Ultimate Beach Cart XL - Rated #1 again for 2023

Don’t let the specs scare you! Our Ultimate Beach Cart XL is light enough for any average person, male or female, to haul everything they need for the beach.

Our cart uses marine grade aluminum tubing. This material is sturdy, lightweight, and rust-proof. The inside liner has a hard bottom, so you won’t worry about anything poking through. The wagon holds up to 6 beach chairs or anything alike — when most wagons can only hold 4 chairs or less!

This is our most popular product and it features large balloon tires. Even at full capacity, the Ultimate Beach Cart XL still rolls effortlessly in sand. You can also purchase accessories on our website, such as extension arms and surfboard racks.

Big Beach Cart with Aluminum Frame

Big Kahuna Beach Wagon

As one of the more expensive options in the market, Big Kahuna is a great heavy-duty aluminum wagon for larger loads. The wagon only weighs 75lbs but holds up to 350lbs.

The cart can easily hold multiple coolers, buckets, and other items. The four side walls stand 8.5” tall, safeguarding your items and making sure nothing falls out.

Best Aluminum Folding Beach Cart

Tipke 2100 Marine Fold-It Utility Cart

We love the unique design for this Marine-grade aluminum beach cart. The holding compartment is 5.75 cubic feet and holds up to 330lbs. When fully folded, it occupies no more than 2 square feet. This means you can easily slide this cart behind your garage shelving for storage, or jigsaw it into your packed back trunk.

The wagon uses 20-inch pneumatic tires, making it more suitable for rough terrains. However, these tires may get stuck in soft sand, so you should look into swapping for balloon tires if possible.
