Two things can ruin a perfectly good beach day: wet weather and sand that creeps up where it shouldn’t. While we can’t help a thunderstorm in the afternoon, we can definitely take steps to keep sand out of our bags, out of our personal nooks and crannies, and out of our lounge area.

All you need is a good foundation: Translation: A towel designed to repel sand, so you don’t have to constantly wipe it down when you want to lie down and catch some sun rays, and it remains unsullied when you’re ready to round it off and call it a day. The Isopho beach blanket, on sale for $19 at Amazon, does just that: it’s sand-resistant and water-resistant, and it won’t get picked up by the wind.

It’s made of 210 polyester, which repels water even better than an umbrella, and easily sheds the sand that gets on it. It is also spacious; big enough for three to five people. Not a beach lover? The Isopho will also be your best friend on a picnic, or as a waterproof cover when and where rain threatens.

This amazing blanket comes with four anchors to keep it from flying off on windy days, plus a drawstring bag for easy carrying. It’s so easy to care for too: it folds up really small so you don’t have to carry around a big blanket, and you can just throw it in a washing machine after your outdoor adventure.

Complete and over 5,000 five-star reviews, no wonder it’s an Amazon best-seller. “So light yet durable,” one happy user shared. “Sand just slides off. Comes with four spikes to hold it in place in the sand. We put it in front of our tent and it created a little buffer zone on the busy beach. Perfect beach mat.”

“Bought this to use on vacation to North Myrtle Beach,” reported another shopper. “I was happy to see that the blanket was attached to the bag so I didn’t have to worry about losing it! Installation was easy despite the beach breeze and my towels stayed sand free… Can’t wait to get them!” him to use it again!!!”

A third shopper came forward: “This thing is magical! Compact. Easy to set up and sand won’t stick. Cleans great.”
