Summer beckons with warm sunshine and endless possibilities for fun on the beach. Drying off after a refreshing swim or simply lounging on the warm sand, sunscreen slathered on, a good beach towel becomes an absolute necessity. But let’s face it, not all beach towels are created equal. The struggle is real—no matter how hard you try, the sand seems to follow you everywhere, clinging stubbornly to your regular beach towel.

Thankfully, there’s a solution! An Australian company has developed a revolutionary beach towel: the Tesalate. Lightweight, absorbent, and boasting the ability to repel sand, the Tesalate piqued my curiosity. Having heard about these towels before, I was skeptical of their claims of being sand-free and quick-drying. But was I in for a pleasant surprise? Read on to find out!

First Impressions

The Tesalate towel arrived in a nice branded drawstring slipcase, with a care instruction card and the towel itself wrapped in tissue paper. The presentation felt premium. Unlike bulky beach towels, the Tesalate is compact and immediately impresses with its high-quality print and fabric. The edges have a thick protective stitch to prevent fraying, and I liked the double-sided design with a signature black and white geometric pattern on the back.

Patterns & Designs

Tesalate offers over 37 designs, from bright colors and geometric patterns to florals. With two size options (160cm x 80cm and 160cm x 160cm), there’s a perfect fit for everyone. I particularly loved the “Phoenix” design, a black and white monochrome with a beautiful bohemian feel.

  • Ultra Absorbent; the company claims that it can hold up to one litre of water.

  • Compact when rolled. Fits in your bag perfect for travel and carrying around in a small bag.

This is where the Tesalate truly shines. The sand repellent feature is impressive. Sand brushed right off during use, and while a few stray grains might sneak in, it’s a far cry from the usual beach towel struggle. The towel’s absorbency surprised me as well. It quickly dried me off after a swim, and it air-dried fast too. No more lugging around a damp towel for hours! Beyond the beach, the Tesalate also worked well for picnics and lounging by the pool. (Care instructions are included with the towel, but you can also find them on the Tesalate website.)

Value for Money

Tesalate towels are pricier than regular ones, with the smaller size costing $59 USD and the larger $99 USD. However, the quality, sand-repellent feature, compact size, and absorbency justify the price. This isn’t just a beach towel; it’s a travel towel, picnic blanket, and stylish poolside accessory all in one.


Overall, I really like the Tesalate Sand-Free Beach Towel. It’s compact and fits perfectly in your beach bag, making it ideal for travel. The absorbency and sand-repellent features are impressive, making it the best beach towel I’ve used. With over 37 stylish designs to choose from, you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for your next Instagram-worthy beach day.

While Tesalate towels are a bit more expensive than regular beach towels, the price feels justified for the quality, features, and versatility you get. The $59 USD for the 160cm x 80cm / 63 x 31 inches and $99 USD for the 160cm x 160cm / 63 x 63 inches are reasonable options, especially if you’re looking for a beach towel that will last for years. Thanks again to Tesalate for giving us the chance to experience this innovative product. Tesalate towels would definitely make a perfect gift for any beach lover!
