I am only familiar with the ones in Mexico. There, they are called "palapas".

There is no special term for them in Britain, where I think most people would describe them simply as thatched beach umbrellas.

In the USA they are also known as tiki umbrellas ('tiki' being a term borrowed from Polynesia or New Zealand (Maori)).
