The Mystery of the Disappearing Towel

The Mystery of the Disappearing Towel

January in Australia is the month of summer swims, sandy toes and disappearing towels.

The kids seem to use and lose every beach towel possible. Only to be discovered in a sopping mess by the pool or under someone's bed. And always covered in sand!

Whether you're staying at a holiday apartment, five star hotel or holidaying at home - keeping track of your beach towels can drive you bananas.

Muggy days. Occasional storms. Ocean swims in the rain. Endless sunny days on the sand. Beach towels are an essential ingredient to Aussie summer life.

Finding the perfect beach towel can be a lifelong mission. These days towels come in all shapes and sizes. Round ones, super thin, microfibre, teeny tiny, with hood, without a hood, lightweight, fast drying, organic or cotton, sand free or fluffy fabric. Endless possibilities. But they will all certainly end up wet and sandy at the end of the day.


Whether you're surfing, swimming or just want to look stylish at one of Port Macquarie's 18 beautiful beaches our tip is to choose the towel to suit your lifestyle. There's so much choice we thought we'd share our top towels on trend for 2018.

Here's some Aussie towels we love.  Do you have a favourite beach towel?

4) Tesalate

The first sand free towel. Launched at Bondi Beach Markets, the brand has quickly gone global. The Lonely Planet review says "No more dragging half the beach home as an Australian company has invented a sand-free towel." Test out Tesalate and let us know what you think.

Head to beach. Have fun. Swim. Relax. Before you leave the beach give your towel a good shake, being mindful of the wind direction and people around you. Once home immediately hang out to dry or throw straight in the washing machine. Fold and pack ready for your next beach day. And repeat. 

Here's to a happy beach life. Now it's time to find my towel.
