As per other review, we bought more of these towels for ourselves after buying some of these as Christmas gifts for children. Whether for beach or pool, these are brilliant. They dry quickly and fit well into the swim bags. Sand doesn't stick: that same quality means they can't really be tied around your waist like a traditional beach towel. However, they are so good at drying you off that you can just pop a cotton sarong straight on afterwards and you'll be dry enough that the sarong won't be drenched and clinging.
Love all the towels. Gorgeous patterns vibrant colours.
Love that there is matching wet-bags. Will be very handy for pool or beach
