Two things can ruin a perfectly good beach day: Wet weather, and sand creeping up in places where it shouldn't. Though there's nothing we can do about an afternoon thunderstorm, we can absolutely take steps to keep sand out of our bags, away from our personal nooks and crannies, and off our lounging space.

All you need is a good base: Translation: A towel that's designed to repel sand, so that you're not constantly wiping it off when you want to lie down and catch some rays, and that'll stay unsullied when you're ready to wrap it up and call it a day. The Isopho Beach Blanket, on sale for $19 at Amazon, does just that: It's sand-proof and water-resistant, plus it doesn't get picked up by the wind. 

It's made of 210 polyester, which repels water even better than an umbrella, and easily shakes off any sand that gets on it. It's spacious too; big enough to fit three to five people. Not a beach bum? The Isopho will also be your best friend at a picnic, or as an anytime waterproof cover whenever and wherever 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 low-maintenance, too: It folds up really small, so you don't have to lug around a large blanket with you, and you can just chuck it in a washing machine after your alfresco adventure.

With all that going for it and over 5,000 five-star reviews, no wonder it's an Amazon bestseller. "So lightweight, yet durable," one happy user shared. "Sand just slides off of it. Comes with four spikes to hold it in place in the sand. We put it in front of the our tent and it created a little buffer zone on the crowded beach. Perfect beach mat."

"I bought this to use on vacation to North Myrtle Beach," another shopper reported. "I was happy to see that the blanket was attached to the bag so I wouldn't have to worry about losing it! Setup was easy despite the beach breeze, and my towels remained sand free... I can't wait to use it again!!!"

A third shopper chimed in: "This thing is magical! Compact. Easy to set up and sand doesn’t stick. Cleans up great."
