Dreaming about travel? Aren’t we all! The allure of an overseas adventure is so strong when you’ve been stuck at home for so long. Even if you can’t make it to an exotic destination any time soon, it doesn’t mean you can’t plan a fun-filled holiday closer to home. Wherever you’re heading next, if it involves water then you’ll want a Turkish beach towel in your bag. Here’s why.

Perfect to pack

Turkish beach towels are the ideal weight, size and fabric to pop in your suitcase or bag. For something so functional, they are incredibly light – our beach towels weigh in at just 240g. They’re thin, too. Rolling or folding (whatever your packing proclivity) down to almost nothing, they don’t take up precious space in your bag like a regular towel does. You’ll hardly notice your towel in your bag, but you’ll be glad you packed it for when you want to hit the beach, pool, spa or gym. 

Perfect to take on day trips 

Once you’ve reached your destination, you’re ready to explore. You’ll love the versatility of your Turkish towel. Use it to dry off after a dip in the ocean and it’ll be dry by the time you reach the next beach on your day’s adventure (top tip – drape over the esky or picnic basket in the boot to help it dry). Use it as a sarong as you explore local shops. Use it as an impromptu picnic rug when you and your travel companions get peckish. Use it as a blanket or wrap as you sit and watch the sunset.

Perfect for a quick wash

If you’re lucky enough to be on holidays for a few weeks, then you’ll need to factor in some washing, right? You can hand-wash a Turkish towel in your hotel room sink or bathtub – just leave it to soak in some laundry detergent (or just use soap if you didn’t pack detergent) for about 10 minutes and then give it a good, old-fashioned hand scrub. Rinse. Squeeze. Hang somewhere breezy to dry. Too easy.
