We love the Beach Mat! The sand and water just roll right off. It would be great if there were little clips on the corners that could attach to the sides of the cabana (where the sand goes) to hold it in place on windy days (😝). However, I think it is great! I included 3 pictures of the mat..the one with the darker shade was taken on a VERY windy day. You can see the mat blowing up on the right side.
