Fun in the Sun with Tesalate Beach Towels Review

| August 9, 2019 | 11 Comments

Is there anything better than relaxing at a beach on a sunny summer day? Warm weather in Canada is only here for a few months, and one of the best ways to soak up some fun in the sun is to pack up your beach towels, sunglasses, and sunscreen and have beach day! They’re the perfect way to cool down, have a cold drink surrounded by amazing company, and, if you’re lucky, get that perfect tan! 

Although, having an excellent beach towel that’s easy to pack is key to getting the most of your outing. Especially one that doesn’t start collecting enough sand to build a sand castle while you’re attempting to tan! Or worse, stays wet for longer than it should after a refreshing swim! Nobody wants their beach day to feel like a drag because of an uncooperative towel! 

Thankfully, Tesalate has revolutionized the traditional beach towel by creating one that’s stylish, versatile, functional, and sand-free! They asked if I would be interested in reviewing two of their beach towels, and I couldn’t wait to have some fun in the sun this summer with Tesalate’s revolutionary design!

Tesalate has over a dozen beautiful beach towel designs to choose from! I was fortunate enough to be able to pick the two designs I personally loved the most to review, which were:

Towel Features

All of Tesalate’s towels are proudly made in Australia with their exclusive AbsorbLite™ fabric! This allows for a towel that can repel sand and dry rapidly, while also remaining compact and light!

Besides being the perfect companion towel for your trips to the beach, its versatility allows you to pack it with you on your travels, to dry off at the pool, as a gym towel, or as a yoga mat!

By using cutting-edge textile technology, Tesalate’s AbsorbLitefabric was engineered to create a beach towel that can be: 

  • Sand free.
  • Full sized towel: 160cm x 80cm / 63 x 31 inches.
  • Ultra absorbent. It can absorb at least 1 litre (33 oz.) litre of water!
  • Rapid-drying.
  • Compact when rolled. Easily fits in any bag!

Shipping and Prices

It had been years since I’d taken the time to enjoy a lovely beach day, so it’s safe to say that I was very excited to receive my towels for this review! Plus, not only does Tesalate offer free standard shipping and returns for all of Canada, but it only took about a week after my order was placed for me to receive my towels, which had been shipped all the way from Chullora, Australia! Out of all the online orders I’ve placed within the past years, Tesalate by far has some of the quickest and best shipping out there, and they’re shipping from Australia! Not to mention I wasn’t charged any additional duty fees! Talk about a steal!

Each regular beach towel retails for $79 CAN. If you’re looking for a larger towel, Tesalate has you covered too! Each Towel for Two retails at $139 CAN, which is double the size of the regular! They measure at: 160cm x 160cm / 63 x 63 inches. These towels would be fantastic for a family or a couple looking to soak up the sun!

Plus, if you sign up for their newsletter, you’ll also get 10% off of your first order! It truly doesn’t get any better than that!

A Perfect Beach day with Tesalate!

On a perfect summer’s afternoon, I brought my two Tesalate towels to the beach for a well deserved tanning session and a quick dip in the water. For a beach towel that’s relatively thinner than others I currently own, I was surprised by how soft and comfortable it was to lay on! After a good wash, the AbsorbLite™ material felt even softer to the touch! I love it so much!

Undoubtedly, the most incredible feature for these towels are that they remain sand-free. No sand gets into the towel. You can easily brush it off the towel with your hand! Personally, I’m so accustomed to leaving the beach with wet and sand-filled towels that I almost couldn’t believe what my eyes were seeing! There wasn’t a single grain of sand left on either the Malibu or Mahalo towels after giving them a good shake and packing them back up in the lovely (and complimentary!) drawstring bag your towel arrives in. The only grains of sand I brought back home that day were those stuck between my toes!

Be mindful of the wind!

Unfortunately, it happened to be a very windy day throughout my beach outing. I noticed that whenever I wasn’t lying on my towel, the edges had the tendency to lift, and the towel would get caught in the wind as well. I’d have to repeatedly rearrange it and lay it down flat again, especially if the wind began to blow too much sand onto the towel. A quick fix is to simply put down a bag or any heavier items you may have on you (ex: water bottle, picnic basket) on the towel to ensure it stays nice and flat when you aren’t using it!

This is such a minor issue in comparison to how absorbent they are (at least a litre of water!) and how quickly they can dry! In under ten minutes after drying off from my quick dip in the water, I had a beach towel that looked immaculate. You couldn’t even tell I’d used it! 

Another lovely little feature are the reversible designs. You can flip the towel around and enjoy another design at your heart’s content!

The best towel I’ve owned!

Tesalate’s beach towels are definitely a tad pricier than most regular towels, but I would absolutely recommend them at 1000%! They’re an investment worth making simply for their versatility, practicality, and unique features. In the past, I found trips to the beach to be such a hassle, and I felt as though I’d brought home the entire beach with me; however, having two amazing towels this last trip made a world of difference! I’ll definitely be using my Tesalate towels at home, for future beach trips, at the pool, and even the gym!
