Skip laying out multiple towels to build a beach spot, and just bring a printed round towel to claim your space. The Beach People’s round towels get design inspiration from around the world, from the Middle East to Santorini to Montauk, and we love the warm pastels of this design. Pick up their leather carrier ($39) to make toting the towel a breeze.
Each one of Mayde’s Rainbow Elements towels are inspired by (you guessed it) a different element, and we love the fire design for summer. The plush towel will be easy to spot with its vibrant pattern, whether you’re coming in from the water or coming back from a snack shack run.
Planning to do a little yoga on the beach? Don’t forget a LEUS towel, shaped to completely cover a yoga mat not just to give it a fun new look, but also to soak up any perspiration while holding that downward dog and keep you from slipping. It works even better the damper it gets.
Slowtide’s plush towels have a variety of fun prints, created by a group of three surfers who couldn’t find any towels that really piqued their interest. With a line that pulls inspiration from the natural world, we aren’t surprised a succulent-print towel has hit their lineup.
If you're into subscription boxes, you'll love this summer collection featuring the perfect beach towel. The super-absorbent fabric boasts a punchy color palette that instantly transports you to the tropics.
