There's nothing better than spending the day at the beach or swimming pool, with the rays of the sun beating down and the sweet smell of suntan lotion lingering in the distance. What makes your day complete is having a comfy towel to carry around. Beach towels are an important part of any day at the shore: they keep you warm and dry, but they can be used for much more than just drying off. They give you a comfortable place to sit--in the sand or on a bed of grass--and they serve as an accessory to your bathing attire.
Most beach towels are made from 100% cotton, as this material is lightweight, dries fast, and absorbs water quickly. You can also find velour and terry cloth versions, which are fast drying and extra soft. Many adult's and kids' towels can also be purchased in hooded styles which are great for drying hair and keeping you warm after you get out of the pool.
Towels also come in different sizes, which makes it easy to choose the perfect fit for babies, children and adults. You can even purchase an oversized beach towel for added size, although these towels are often heavy and best for adults. Some will even come with a fun beach bag for carrying.
