Swimming Towels for the Beach and Pool

Proper swimming towels are a great investment.  Swim towels will provide you with a fast and easy way to get dry and can also be used to lie back on whilst you are soaking up the sun.  Make sure you choose a quality towel that will be able to stand up to frequent use on the beach or around the pool. Here are a few tips for choosing your next swimming towel.

1. Get the right size

You need a decent size swim towel so that you can dry off properly once you get out of the water.  You may also want to sit or lie on your swim towel so it will need to provide of a certain size.  You can get different size swim towels on the market. 

As a rough guide you should be looking for a towel you can wrap around yourself comfortably and that will come down to around your mid calves or ankles.  This will be similar to the size of a large bath towel.  If you do a lot of camping or hiking as part of your beach side adventures then you might need a smaller towel that will be easier to carry and pack away.

2. Choose a quality material

A practical choice for swim towels is a cotton and velour mix. This is a robust and affordable material that lasts well and will also be soft and comfortable against your skin.  Pure cotton towels are heavier and more expensive but they can be more absorbent so that you dry off quicker.  You can get many different blends of cotton, terry, velour and other synthetic fabric mixes for swim towels so look around and try a few different options out to see what works best for you.

3. Choose a unique design

When you are at the beach or by the pool there will most likely be lots of other people with swim towels.  If you choose a unique and colourful design then your towel will stand out so that you can find it more easily.  It is also a good idea to sew your initials into your towel just in case someone else does have a similar design.

If you have children then buy a different towel for each of them so there are less arguments when it comes time to drying off and packing things away.

4. Buy your towel online

Good quality swim towels for the family are not cheap so it’s a good idea to look online for some bargains. The Swimwear Shack has some great swim towels for children in some fun and colourful designs.  These small, lightweight towels have hood sections to make it easier to get your kids dry.  They can also wear them like little dressing gowns for additional warmth if the weather turns chilly later once they get out of the water.
