While most people use a standard towel when going to the beach, those who are accustomed to spending time by the seaside already know about the benefits of using a beach blanket instead. Not to say that towels don’t do their job well, although beach blankets are a lot better when it comes to heat insulation and impermeability.
Having said that, you should perhaps pay attention to what you’re buying when it comes to beach blankets because some are definitely better than others. To make it easier for you, we put together a list of the ten best beach blankets money can buy.
10DOZZZ Foldable Waterproof Camping Blanket
This foldable camping blanket is perfect for grass surfaces, although you can also use it when going to the beach just as well. It is also fairly lightweight and compact when folded, which may explain why it’s so popular to begin with. Because of its impermeability, you should definitely wash this blanket in cold water separately while making sure not to bleach, tumble, or iron it.
9e-joy Beach Blanket Mat
It is important for beach blankets to be easy to store and even easier to carry, which is where this particular blanket stands out. You see, this 56″ x 70″ beach blanket can be folded down to 8″ x 12″, which makes it easy to carry. For this purpose, it comes with a carry bag with a handle that allows you to carry the blanket the same way you would carry any other bag. At the same time, the blanket benefits from a Polyester & PVC construction that makes it 100% waterproof.
8Sand Proof Water Proof Beach Blanket Mat
Thanks to its high-quality, water-resistant top made of polyester, this blanket will withstand any amount of humidity with ease. It will also withstand a fair amount of abuse thanks to its durable PVC bottom. Thanks to its multifunctional construction, you can use this blanket not only when going at the beach but when going hiking or camping as well. We say this because the blanket is designed to be very easy to clean just by using a standard brush.
7Roebury Picnic Blanket & Beach Blanket
It is softness that makes this particular beach blanket stand out from the rest, thanks mainly to its smooth sandless inner lining construction. This construction makes the blanket not only very comfortable to sit on but also relatively easy to clean. Furthermore, this beach blanket folds easily into a compact zipped tote it comes equipped with, one that makes the blanket very easy to carry thanks to a specially designed strap.
6Sand Repellant Lightweight Compact Beach Blanket
Like the name suggests, this is a sand-repellant beach blanket in every sense of the term. The reason behind this being the smooth construction which involves Parachute Nylon, a construction that makes sand slide off the surface of the blanket. At the same time, the blanket can be double anchored to make sure it doesn’t get blow away by the wind with the help of two corner sand pockets.

4ZOMAKE Large Outdoor Beach Picnic Blanket
As a result of its soft fleece surface, this beach blanket will not irritate your skin in any way. At the same time, its soft surface is entirely waterproof on both sides, thus making it easier for you to choose a good spot at the beach without having to worry about wet spots. Also worth mentioning is the fact that despite being designed with comfort in mind above everything else, this blanket is also rather large and spacious.
3Yoler Beach Soft Microfiber Camping Picnic Blanket
This quality beach blanket benefits from a special microfiber fabric, a construction that makes it soft and absorbent. The blanket also benefits from an ingenious design, one that features a sutured pocket in each corner of the blanket to enable you to fixate the blanket on the ground when it’s windy outside. Speaking of weather, this blanket is designed to withstand anything mother nature has to throw at it as a result of its extra durable construction.
2Sand Escape Compact Outdoor Beach Blanket
Large yet surprisingly compact when folded, this beach blanket from WildHorn Outfitters will definitely meet anyone’s standards when it comes to comfort and durability. The reason we say this is because the blanket is made from a dry ripstop nylon that enables it to withstand a fair amount of abuse before showing signs of wear. Interestingly enough, it also features four sand anchor pockets to weigh the blanket down if needed, a feature that comes particularly handy when it gets windy outside.
1JJ Cole Outdoor Blanket
There is perhaps no better beach blanket out there than JJ Cole’s Outdoor Blanket in terms of impermeability and comfort. Thanks to specially designed sewin-in inserts, this blanket is very easy to fold, while its detachable strap ensures that you won’t have any issues carrying it around.
