Pop up tent VS umbrella for beach

Does anyone have a recommendation for a beach tent/shelter or umbrella?
I need something that’s easy and fast to secure and easy and fast to take down and carry

Umbrellas are very difficult to secure. One gust of wind and it is off. Well a gentle breeze even.
Pop up tent you can weigh down with all your bags and dc.
Of course, if it is raining and you have a long walk back to the car, a tent won't keep your head dry - still need your cagoul for that.

Yeah I’ve had no luck with umbrellas
I was looking at those twisty things you put in the ground to secure them but I’m not sure they’re any good
i Have a pop up tent but it’s too difficult to fold
