We always take a blanket or large towel with us to the beach but until recently we never did when we'd head over to the pool. The problem is, it was always so hot getting out of the pool that it was unpleasant. Our feet would get burnt, there was no place to sit either because there is no shade over the apartment complex pool where we live. The Seaside Beach & Picnic Mat folds flat, and is easy to carry along anywhere you go, so now in addition to having it along at the beach, we're bringing it to the pool as well.
This mat is water-resistant, which is perfect for beach day adventures. It's also LARGE. Measuring in at 56" L x 56" W, it will take you from picnic, to park time, to the beach, the pool, and so much more. It's also perfect to bring along if you have small children and want to let them down on the ground anywhere (airport, park, a friend's house, etc.).
