Tesalate Beach Towels Review

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 Beach Towels Review

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! 

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:

Beach 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!

Tesalate Shipping and Prices

REVISED: Please take not that Tesalate does not ship to Canada at the present time. Only to US and Australia.

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 beach 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!

Please feel free to visit their website to admire their gorgeous lookbook filled with their various beach towels design! You can also take a look at their Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram pages as well!

  2. These towels have really pretty designs I l would love to have a few towels that I can use at the beach and not have a car load of sand to vacumn It would be awesome

    • It’s honestly the best feature of these towels! I absolutely loved not feeling as though I was bringing back the entire beach with me into my car. Plus there’s so many beautiful designs to choose from!

  3. Sure they’re pricey but no doubt worth every penny for all that they accomplish that other beach towels don’t! I’d love to have that double sized one 🙂

    • I couldn’t agree more! The double sized one looks so amazing (and comfortable to lay on too)! Definitely worth every penny!

  4. Great review! I love the patterns. The fact that they are sand free make them an absolute must have for the beach! I hate trying to dry off with a towel covered in sand.

  5. I’m really surprised that I didn’t hear about these towels since I visited my daughter when she was living in Australia a few times. We were often on the beach so you’d think I would have.

  6. Tesalate Beach is one of the best beaches that I’ve been to, and I plan to visit this beach once again in the future. My friends had an amazing time when they were there, as well. This time, we’ll be going together.

  7. I wasn’t able to order any Tesalate products to Canada through their website… did they since change their shipping policy? If anyone knows how to order any of their towels within or to Canada please let me know! thanks

    • Thanks for informing me about this! They don’t seem to ship to Canada at the present time. When I can’t get a product shipped to Canada, but they will ship to the US, I use a service like myusaddress.ca. Worth looking into if you really want one!
