Review: Tesalate Sand-free Beach Towel

7 Min Read

Summer calls for warm sunshine and fun days spent on the beach. Whether drying off after swimming or lounging on the warm sand with sunscreen, a good beach towel is an absolute must. However, not all beach towels are created equal.

No matter how hard you try to keep sand at the beach, it always seems to follow you back wherever you go. Luckily, there is a solution. An Australian company has invented the Tesalate beach towel that is lightweight, absorbent and won’t trap sand in its fibres. To be honest the idea of a sandless beach towel had me intrigued. I’d read about Tesalate beach towels before but I wasn’t sure whether to believe their claim of a sand-free and quick dry beach towel.

First Impression

When I first opened my package, it came in a very nice branded black drawstring slipcase. Inside contains a small card about the Tesalate Sand-free Beach Towel, an overview of its features and care instructions. The beach towel was also wrapped in a tissue paper giving it a more premium presentation.

Tesalate towel is compact unlike the regular beach towels we are accustomed to. At first glance, the print and the fabric looked premium and it doesn’t look like your typical towel. The edges of the towel are bound in a thick protective stitch to prevent fraying. I also liked the fact that the towels are double-sided with the signature black and white triangle pattern on the back.

Patterns & Designs

Tesalate Sand-free Beach Towel comes with a colourful pattern on one side, and a black-and-white geometric pattern on the other. Tesalate has over 37 towel designs to choose from with a mix of a mix of designs with bright colours, geometric patterns, floral prints and more. The towel has 2 available sizes (160cm x 80cm / 63 x 31 inches) and (160cm x 160cm / 63 x 63 inches) both are big enough to lie down and enjoy the sun.

One of the designs that caught my eyes was the “Phoenix” design. It’s a black and white monochrome design with a beautiful bohemian print.

Overall I really like the Tesalate Sand-free Beach Towel, which is so compact and will fit perfectly in your beach bag.

Not to mention having over 37 designs for you to choose and all are very instagrammable. If you love the beach then you will surely love Tesalate towels!


Although these towels are a bit pricey compared to the regular beach towels, I personally think 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 just good, especially if you are looking for quality beach towels with beautiful prints that are perfect for your summer weekend trips at the beach.
