Tanning FAQs

Your tanning and skin care are important to us and we will always help you to achieve the best tanning in Spalding using the best sunbeds and stand ups.

In the meantime here are our top questions asked by our new tanning clients.

The Electric Beach is a walk in tanning salon. We will be more than happy to help you get started when you arrive at the reception desk. We have 4 tanning booths so there is usually a sunbed or stand up available to use at most times.

Free street parking is available right outside the tanning salon and the surrounding streets. We are also very close to Vine Street car park and Drapers Place car park.

Pay as you go is only 50p per minute and we will give you free tanning credit when you buy a £20 course (get a further £5 FREE), £30 (get a further £9 FREE) and £40 (get a further £14 FREE.) Please like us on Facebook to keep up with more tanning offers.

We open 7 days a week, starting early in the morning.

Monday to Friday 9.00 am – 7.00 pm, Saturday 9.00 am – 3.00 pm and Sundays & Bank Holidays* 10.00 am – 12.00 noon.

Government legislation and local authority stipulation requires that no one under 18 years old can use the tanning equipment.

No one under 18 years can be in the tanning salon at any time even if supervised. This is also a requirement from the local authorities and insurance stipulations.

We will help you assess your skin type when you register to start at the Electric Beach. Your skin type determines the amount of ‘Melanin’ you produce which is the pigment that darkens when you are exposed to the correct amount of UVA& B.

We sell the worlds largest and favourite brand ’Australian Gold’ in satchets and bottles. Tanning lotion ingredients help to keep your skin hydrated and moisturised while the ingredients promote a quicker and deeper tanning colour.

Your eyes and eye lids are sensitive to UV light. You can buy your very own from the foyer or you can use the ones available in the tanning cubicles.

The sunbeds and stand ups have their own fans for you to adjust to suit and the whole salon has an air extraction system that removes/ replaces the air in the building very quickly.

We clean the high touch areas around the salon and there is hand sanitiser on entry. You can further sanitise your own cubicle if you wanted to by using the sunbed cleaner available in each booth. The ventilation air extraction system in the salon exhausts/ replaces air very quickly in the building. Feel free to wear a face mask in the public areas and also use the one way system available. 

Generally, apart from some urban myths, it’s just how you feel your posture is more suited within the cubicle. We have 2 lay down sunbeds and 2 stand up tanners so feel free to make your own personal choice and enjoy your tanning even more!
