It is that time of the year again where everyone (or nearly everyone!) heads to the beach for a nice soak in the cool sea water and a great basking under the glorious sun.
That is a great activity for most people who live here in Dubai because it is perennially hot here where the sun shines so bright and HOT! Although going to the beach can only be done on certain times of the day (the early morning and during the sunset and evening) here because the temperature can get very nasty. You don't want to end up getting burned or suffocated or worse, having heat stroke.
We frequent the beach just before sunset when the wind is blowing nice albeit the humidity. We just got used to all these living here for so long. One of the nice stuff we have to bring along apart from the cooler and a great big beach or picnic parasol is our handy Tendance Beach Mat.
The mat is light to carry and folds like any cloth and has a handle so it looks like a garment bag. It is made of fine, woven nylon/plastic material which is good for the sand or grasses during picnic time because it is waterproof. The size of the mat is 200 x 150 cm, just enough to cover few (not that we need the whole shoreline to ourselves!).
Cleaning is never a problem for this mat too because you just have to shake the sand nor other debris off and hose it down with any water hose and hang as you would your rags on the clothes-line.
I really like this beach mat. As a matter of fact, I think it is not just a beach mat, it's a mat for all season!
