As the summer heats up and vacation season arrives, the beach is a classic summer getaway. The warm sun, cool breeze and inviting blue water of an otherwise perfect beach day have one unwelcome companion — sand everywhere. Beach sand can be a nuisance. It lingers in every crack and crevice, even weeks after visiting the beach. Luckily, whether you are lounging seaside or enjoying a picnic by the shore, these top-rated sand-free beach essentials promise to let you enjoy your experience without the hassles sand brings.


Leave the sand at the beach with this easy-to-use sand removal bag. Simply tap the pouch to release a talc-free powder, then glide over the skin to release any stuck-on sand. Sandscreen's portable design is equipped with a waterproof carrying bag, making it perfect for swift post-beach clean-up. For bonus points, sandscreen is vegan, cruelty-free and reef-friendly.

From $64.99

If you're traveling in a group, keep the whole crew sand-free with CGEAR's Original Sandfree Beach Mat. This mat features sand-free technology that filters sand downward and prevents it from coming back up. With a range of sizes fitting up to 14 people, make your beach get-together a party — without inviting sand.

Sand Cloud

Take one of our favorite sand-free staples on the go with Sand Cloud's towel bag. Use it as a blanket for lounging on the sand, then convert it into a drawstring bag to hold your beach essentials. The brand's signature Turkish Cotton weave makes it fast-drying and sand-resistant. Available in a variety of colorful designs, this convertible towel has just the right blend of style and function.


Enjoy your beach sports without bringing home sand as a souvenir. De-sand those beach balls and boogie boards with this beach brush kit. This dual-sided beechwood brush swipes sand off almost anything you might bring to the beach — including people! Take this brush on the go in its complementary microfiber bag, which also functions as a sunglass and screen wipe.


Are you looking to keep the sandy shores away from your valuables this summer? This water- and sand-proof bucket bag is the only home you need for your beach day accessories. With a sealed touchscreen window for phone use and a two-liter dry compartment for your must-haves, you can keep your phone, jewelry and sunglasses in tow — and safe from the elements.

Sand Cloud

Sand Cloud's Party Blanket combines the sand-free weave the brand is known for with a thin construction that's easy to pack away and take on the go. It's got some serious softness and is big enough to share with friends. With a fringe border, this blanket comes in styles cute enough to give as a gift or keep for yourself.

$49.99 $34.99

It's time to elevate your beach bag. With three pockets and 25 inches of space, you can fit all your favorite items in this tote — minus the sand. It features the same sand-free design as the CGEAR mat, so that means no sandy bag linings here. A nylon finish makes this tote water-, stain- and UV-resistant.


Nothing is worse than hearing the crunch of sand while trying to enjoy snacks seaside. One wrong move can turn the perfect beach spread into a sandy disaster. Protect your favorite beach eats by sealing them in this air-tight container from LocknLock. The leak-proof container keeps your snacks in and sand out, plus the divided sections make it perfect for picky kids.


Wagons are an easy way to transport your gear to and from the beach, and sand is no match for this one from TIMBER RIDGE. Not only is this wagon equipped with heavy-duty all-terrain wheels, but it also features two cupholders, has a storage pocket and collapses with the push of a button.

$19.97 $18.77

Opt for this towel-lined mitt for sand removal on the go. It sweeps the sand right off and packs away in a convenient carry case. It also doubles as an applicator for sunscreen and tanning lotion.

Dock & Bay

Have kids that love to build sandcastles? Dock and Bay's quick-drying towels feature a loopless weave that makes it easy to shake off sand once playtime ends. Grab these kid-friendly towels in more than 10 colorful designs that every child is sure to adore.
