A variety of towel known for its extraordinary size and bright patterns. Commonly used at the beach, near the pool, or as an impromptu picnic blanket.

Owning a beach towel is a good indicator of proximity to a beach or pool, but few people purchase a beach towel for use solely as a stand-in for a good sturdy picnic blanket.

Be sure to look for a tight weave, colors other than black, and a subtle tooth. These features resist sand drifting through the towel, overheating from sunlight, and add ease of sand removal.
