With some of the world’s most idyllic beaches, we’re totally spoilt for choice in Australia when it comes to beaching and camping destinations. From rugged, wind-swept beaches on the Southern Ocean to the protected, crystalline coves of the Great Barrier Reef, you’ll always be able to find the perfect spot to spread out your favourite sand free beach mat and enjoy the views.
Doubling as a picnic mat, our sandless beach blankets are ideal for packing in the car for your next waterside adventure. Being lightweight, they’re deceptively sturdy yet luxurious enough to double as a cosy wrap if the wind picks up, and when they get wet, will dry in half the time of a regular towel or mat.
While most of us love the beach, here at Recycled Mats we’re not big fans of the sand getting in between us and our gear. Not only can it itch and irritate, it can be a real pain if it fills up your beach bag or snack box. Hence the recent leap in the popularity of sand free beach mats and towels. They’re genius!
Taking advantage of cutting-edge technology, our sandless beach mats are expertly crafted from recycled materials, creating a soft microfibre material that is not only great for the beach, it’s even better for our precious environment.
Discarded plastic bottles are transformed into a soft, highly absorbent microfibre fabric that repels sand and with a non-toxic and effective anti-microbial treatment added, you can rest assured that your new sandless beach blanket also won’t mould nor harbour any nasty bacteria...meaning it’ll stay smelling fresher for longer!
With a clever hidden zip pocket for stashing away valuables and a handy hanging strap, our sand mats are packed with clever extras. They also come with a drawstring carry bag in the same innovative fabric, folding down to a neat compact size and making them ideal for keeping in the car or beach bag.
Being reversible with complementary designs on each side, you also get two completely different looks....two sand free mats for the price of one! And they're fully machine washable so a cinch to keep clean, ready for that next outdoor adventure. Not limited to the beach, you can enjoy your sand mat wherever life takes you - by the river, to the local park, deep into the bush or even in your very own backyard!

If you’re planning to spend the day outdoors, why not complete your beach day set up by shading your sand free beach mat with one of our fabulous vintage beach umbrellas? Designed with the Aussie summer in mind, our fringed retro beach umbrellas not only look stylish, they’ll protect you and your loved ones from the harsh sun. And they’ll fit neatly through the dedicated umbrella slit in the centre of all of our sandless beach mats. We also stock recycled plastic sand anchors (easily positioned through that centre slit) to secure your umbrella in windy conditions.
Our portable picnic tables also make a great addition to any day at the beach. Perfect for holding drinks, books, phones and nibbles, you can set yourself up in blissful comfort on your beach mat and enjoy hours by the water's edge, keeping your goodies up off the sand and within arm's reach.
With a colourful range of wine coolers and cooler bags to choose from, you’ll also have no trouble keeping your drinks cool on those warm summer days. And if you really want to take your beach setting up a notch, perhaps consider complementing your sandless beach blanket with a matching or contrasting sand free beach towel. We offer a diverse range of designs from retro florals, classic stripes, animal prints and something fun for the kids.
Sand-free means less itch, less scratch and less sand to clean up out of your car - and together with less plastic rubbish harming our precious marine environment, your new sandless beach mat makes for a truly good day out!
