The 9 best beach towels of 2022, tested in our lab


Who it is for: People looking for an absorbent, lightweight and quick-drying towel for the beach or pool.

For whom it is not: People who prefer a thicker beach towel.

The NovForth Beach Towel earned the top spot on our list because it cost less than half the median price of the beach towels we tested, but it performed among the best. In our testing, we found this microfiber beach towel to be incredibly absorbent before and after washing: it quickly dried our testers’ hands and was able to soak up a quarter cup of water in less time. ‘one minute. The anti-sand microfiber is easy to clean and dries faster than a standard cotton towel, so you can use it repeatedly after every dip in the pool or ocean. After one wash cycle and one dry cycle, our testers noticed no shrinkage, loose threads or bleeding.

The beach towel comes in three different sizes, including 41 x 73 inches, which is large enough to fully cover a pool chair. It also comes in a variety of fun designs and patterns, although we wanted them to be visible from both sides. Compared to a cotton beach towel, the Novforth one is relatively thin. So if you’re looking for a plush, resort-style beach towel, this might not be the one for you. But the lightweight construction and quick-drying material of this towel make it a great choice for carrying to and from the pool, beach, park, and more.
