Beach days are fast approaching for our sea lovers in the Northern Hemisphere, so there’s no better time to start the search for the perfect luxe beach towel. We've consulted with our design team to find out what factors you should consider when it comes to shopping for a luxury beach towel to suit your needs. From size, to thickness, to function, we’ve rounded up the best towels for every adventure.

Size

The size of your towel is one of the most important elements to consider when shopping for new beach towels. If you typically just go to the beach for quick ocean dips or you prefer to swim laps in the pool, you can opt for a smaller, more lightweight towel. Whereas if you tend to spend long days at the beach, we recommend a larger, more absorbent towel which will give you added softness and extra room for lounging.

Thickness

As beach towels are exposed to sun, salt water and plenty of wear and tear, it’s important that they’re made from strong and durable fabrics. Each of our towels is made from 100% luxurious cotton. The difference you’ll find is the GSM - which stands for grams per square meter. GSM essentially refers to the weight of the fabric woven into a square meter and it determines the thickness and plushness of different towels. A towel with a lower GSM (under 400) is ideal for the gym or a quick swim as they dry faster, whilst a towel with a higher value (400 and above) will be more plush and absorbent, but also takes longer to dry.

Function

When choosing the right beach towel, it helps to consider how you’ll mostly use it. For example, if you have a family, you’re likely wanting beach towels that are lightweight and compact, and also ideally sand-repellent. If you tend to go to the beach for picnics or for lounging in the sun, an oversized and extra soft towel is a great option.
