Lately, it seems like every time I get together with my friends, we talk about planning a beach trip. It makes sense: The weather has warmed up, there have been more sunny days than rainy ones, and since we’ve been outside more often, why not be on a coast somewhere? It’d be nice to use my chairs, bags, and other beach essentials for something other than lounging on a back patio in Louisiana. However, the one item I’ve been missing before taking a road trip to the shore is a proper beach blanket. Don’t get me wrong, I have beach towels that I love, but they get disheveled and sandy and I much prefer using them for drying off rather than laying down. I also have blankets that can be used outdoors, but they aren’t necessarily suited for the beach. Fortunately, Big Blanket Co., a Best List-winning brand for their Original Stretch Blanket, just launched a summer must-have in the form of the Big Beachy Blanket.

The Big Beachy Blanket takes everything I love about the Original Stretch Blanket and remixes it for sunny, sandy outings. Measuring 100 square feet, the blanket is impressively seven times larger than the average beach towel and can fit 4-8 adults on it for kicking back, picnicking, or napping under the sun. An added bonus is that despite its size, the blanket folds down compactly, weighs just four pounds, and comes with a drawstring storage bag that you can take with you on the go. 

Available in Beige Checkered and Red Checkered, the Big Beachy Blanket is made from a cozy blend of cotton and bamboo that’s super soft on the skin and conveniently sand resistant. All you have to do is give it a few shakes and pack it up to avoid taking any unwanted beach bits home with you. Plus, the bamboo fibers of the blanket contribute to its breathability and moisture-wicking properties that will keep you comfortable even under the hot sun. Even better, the oversized beach blanket is machine-washable, so you don’t have to go out of your way to keep it clean and ready for the next trip.

At $159, the Big Beachy Blanket is comparable in price to the brand’s other offerings, but trust me when I say that it’s worth it. I have two blankets and a Hideout Hoodie from Big Blanket Co., and the quality, durability, and comfort keeps me coming back for more. I’ve even had to stop friends and family from leaving my apartment with my Original Stretch Blanket multiple times! If you’re like me and plan to hit the beach this summer (or at any point during the year), the Big Beachy Blanket is a piece you’ll want to have by your side.
