Is it easy to read a book on Kindle Fire while on the beach? Is the sun glare too much to see it?

No it is not easy. The Fire has a LCD screen like your computer, the light cannot compete with the sun so it will be hard if not impossible to use it outdoors.

If you want to read on a beach get a Eink Kindle.

The Fire is a backlit LCD device - like a laptop or smartphone. It will be difficult at best to read at the beach. My advice is to pick up a paperback or two for beach reading. No worries about sunscreen, salt, sand, water, overheating or theft.
