From retro stripes to neutral hues, these beach towels are peak summer. Check out some of the best Aussie brands from Kobn, Mayde, Clothing the Gaps and more.
We ask a lot of our beach towels. They protect us from sand and sun. They dry us off after a swim. They stand guard on our patch of beachside real estate (or poolside lounger). We throw them on over our swimmers as a nod to modesty if we travel more than a block from the sand.
If we’re lucky, they’re also soft and sturdy and kind of stylish. Here are a few of our favourites to invest in this summer.
Look, this offering from Byron Bay’s Hakea calls itself a linen beach blanket, but it’s also perfectly legitimate to use as a towel, sarong or toga, so let’s not get caught up in semantics. Made from 100 per cent linen, these beach blankets get softer with each wear. They scrunch down pretty small in your beach bag, too. $90
