How to Choose Your Beach Towel
There are towels you use to dry off after your shower, and there are towels you take to the pool or the beach.
In theory, there shouldn’t be much of a difference. After all, a towel is a towel.
But you wouldn’t want to bring your old, worn-out towels on your trip to the beach. Read ahead to find out how you can choose the best possible beach towel.
How soft is it?
Beach towels and pool towels can double as blankets. If you’re planning on spending a few hours relaxing, you want a good, soft towel to keep you comfortable.
Look for something thick…but not too thick.
You want a nice, fluffy beach towel, but a towel that’s too thick can become unmanageable. Look for something wide enough to provide comfort and absorbency but thin enough that you can fold it up or roll it up for easy transport.
Is it absorbent?
Your beach towel has two jobs: drying you and keeping you comfortable. Look for beach towels that can dry fast, ideally made from cotton or a terrycloth blend.
Many beach towels double as beach blankets; make sure yours is big enough.
How does it look?
Choosing a towel with brighter, lighter colours is always a good idea when you head to the beach. Dark colours like black or navy tend to absorb heat.
