Beach mats - you want a beach towel but want an EXTRA LARGE version? A beach mat is what you are after!
Use it as a towel, a picnic mat, a shawl. This beach mat is what you make it! (If you want a waterproof picnic mat though, click here)
Oh and say goodbye to all the downsides of traditional towels…..too heavy, too bulky, taking forever to dry, clinging to ALL THE SAND that was ever created and absorbing very little actual water.
Know what I am talking about? But want the large beach mat version?

Use it for the pool or beach and for picnics but also gym, camping, hiking, adventures and how great will this be to travel with one day! Roll it down tiny and pack it away! DREAM with me!
Please note - if being waterproof is important to you, go for the Project Ten picnic mats - heavier and bulkier but BUTTS WILL BE DRY.
Fabrication - SomerSide towels are made from 85% recycled plastic bottles. The plastic bottles are made into Polyester and the remaining 15% is Nylon which provides the absorbency and softness. The pouch is made from the same material. Each towel saves up to 14 plastic bottles from landfill and our ocean.
Care - Wash your SomerSide towel before use to give it that softness, it will also continue to get softer over time and with every wash. Our towels can be put through machine wash at 30 degrees and we recommend washing separately. Our towels dry 3-4 faster than a regular cotton towel so simply hang it outside and it'll be ready for your next activity in no time. SomerSide towels are odour resistant so there is also no need to wash it as often and you can save the planet even more by doing so. This will also prolong the life of the towel.
- 160cm x 160cm OR 63 x 63 inches = perfect for two!
- 650 grams or 1.25lbs!!! Rolls up to the size of a larger water bottle!
Absolutely stunner of a beach mat. Really comfy too and large enough to seat all 3 kids and the dog. Perfect!
It’s truly sand free, easy to manage, and absolutely gorgeous. Love those pockets at the side too. Convenient and great for the environment. What’s not to like?
This is brilliant, it does exactly what I need it for, great addition to our beach kit. Isn’t full of sand and soaking wet when we leave the beach and the zip in the corner is such a good idea. Thank you The Bright Campaign.
So, I finally got round to taking both of our rainbow towels to the beach yesterday, and they did not disappoint!! They were so soft and comfy to sit on, and so easy to shake the sand off that we were still able to use them as towels after we'd showered. My friend had a standard beach towel and picnic blanket set up with her, and after seeing the amount of damp stuck-on sand she ended up having to pack up and take home with her, I couldn't believe we'd ever lived without our SomerSides! Honestly, game changer. I will be buying more!
This towel does it all! I ordered this towel for my husband for Father's Day and gave it to him a little early. He loved how small it packed and the print but then we took it to the beach... My husband and I are kite surfers and now in Singapore we are trying out a new sport, wing foiling. I say this because we spend a lot of time at the beach but like everyone in Singapore, we can't afford to have things around that don't justify the space they take up. This towel is a workhorse. It dries like a charm, we typically share a towel but inevitably the 2nd person to dry off, always gets a soggy towel, not so, with this towel. We could probably dry the whole family & avoid the sogginess. Next, when we aren't in the water it's large enough to be a beach mat because it doesn't trap sand. You just flick it off when you are done & you are ready to go. No messy sand everywhere. Lastly, it dries super quick which is so important in humid Singapore. There is no musty smell because it doesn't stay wet long enough. A total win! It's the perfect beach towel/mat in every way and it packs down to the size of a water bottle. I haven't even addressed the fact that it is made from recycled bottles or that there is a secret zipper to store your keys when you are out splashing around.
