Going to the beach is a blast. But the car ride home and the clean-up afterward is less than enjoyable, to say the least. Having to rinse off a ton of sand that seems to magically get stuck in the most mysterious of places can be time-consuming and it definitely puts a damper on the fun you had while on the beach. But this dream product from Dock & Bay could be just the kind of thing you need to solve your summertime beach-going woes.

This beach towel is the exact opposite of what you’re used to. Instead of trapping moisture and sand, this towel is fast-drying and sand-resistant, so you can pack up your beach supplies feeling like you left the sand and the ocean where it belongs — at the shore, not in your minivan.

As if that information wasn’t enough to send you rushing to purchase 10 of these towels, the fact that they’re available for as low as $19.99 on Amazon will certainly have you clicking “add to cart” in no time.


The reason the towel is able to stand up to sand and dry so quickly is due to the fact that it’s made of microfiber material instead of cotton. This sets it apart from traditional beach towels and is sure to make your beach trips — and the journey home — even more enjoyable.


The towels come in a range of shapes and sizes, including rectangular and round options as well as large and extra large sizing options. Depending on the size and color you choose, you may pay a little extra. Prices range from the $19.99 price point to as much as $39.99.

The product has mostly positive reviews online, thanks to its fast-drying and thin nature. One satisfied customer pointed out that the lack of thickness was a major pro thanks to how easily the towel fit inside a beach or swim tote:

“This is the second towel of this type I have ordered for my granddaughter,” one Amazon review noted. “She is on a swim team and loves both. They are not bulky in her swim bag and they dry fast.”

If you’re interested in even more gear that will have your family dry and sand-free when leaving the beach, you can check out the microfiber kids poncho from Dock & Bay, too.

They come in a variety of colors and range in price from $14.99 to $29.99 on Amazon:


Now’s the time to stock up on beach essentials for your crew, and fast-drying, sand-resistant towels definitely deserve a spot in your beach bag, right next to the sunglasses, sunscreen and zero-G chairs.

Happier beach days are in your future, folks!
