Family Friendly Beach Towels sure to Enhance your South Walton Vacation
As residents of South Walton, we naturally own a lot of beach towels. Practical towels for the entire family are an essential accessory to maximize your fun time at the beach. One of my favorite places to pick up beach towels is on Amazon.com because they are affordable, they have a great selection and most of them ship in 2 days for free! Below are some of our families current favorite beach towels…
Hooded Poncho Beach Towels for Kids Improves your Time on the Sand
My little guy received a Crabbie Cotton Hooded Poncho Beach Towel last year for his birthday and since then I haven’t turned back. Pullover, poncho towels are game changers for parents and an absolute must for kids on the beach in my opinion. If you’re like me and have tried using regular sized beach towels with your kids then you know it’s a losing battle.
Most of the time they end up tripping because full-size towels are too long, or they have a meltdown because the towels continuously fall off. The only way that I’ve found to keep towels on young kids is by wrapping them like a burrito and setting them in a chair. As a mother of 2 young boys, I know that is a difficult enough task to do at home, let alone at the beach.
Hooded poncho beach towels are super kid friendly for two reasons… First, they are really easy to put on children as they simply pull over their heads. Second, they free up the hands which allow little ones to better play in the sand or have a snack. Amazon has many great options for these pullover beach towels so you’re sure to find some that fit your kiddos personality and interests. As a boy mom, I’m naturally drawn to all the toothy creatures, the more ferocious the better!
Poncho towels for kids are affordable and they better enhance everyone’s time at the beach.
Kids Carry their own Beach Towel Backpacks
As our boys get older I love having the extra bodies to help haul junk down to the beach! One easy way for your kiddos to help lighten your load is to have them carry their own towels. I love the Eden Cove Backpack Beach Towels because they are easy for little bodies to carry as they are made of a lightweight material which is perfect for the hot summer days.
Specifically, backpack beach towels are made from microfiber so they aren’t the typical towel texture which I really like. They’re extremely absorbent and dry much faster than traditional cotton beach towels.
Round Oversized Beach Blankets are the Best
Round beach towels are another very popular trend on 30A and all around the United States these days. Oversized, round beach towels are super practical for a number of reasons… They are perfect for getting a tan, having a picnic or placing under an umbrella. Round oversized blankets under an umbrella on the beach provide the perfect place to plop down a few sleeping babies and they are a must for moms.
This specific towel (Genovega Thick Round Beach Towel Blanket Pink Flamingo) I got on Amazon.com is thicker than most and so it transitions well from the sand to your favorite Rosemary Beach Green. It’s great for live music on 30A or simply lounging. Under the large palm trees in Alys Beach is where I personally use my round oversized beach towel blanket most often. I like to relax on my Pink Flamingo towel while watching my kids play on the Alys Beach Splash Pad after enjoying Charlie’s Donuts.
Turkish Towels work Great at the Beach
Turkish towels are a more trendy option, however, I believe this is one trend that will be around for awhile. I’ve been on the Turkish towel bandwagon for a few years now and have grown quite the collection. I have towels ranging from expensive to economical. The “Nature is Gift Turkish Towels” I purchased on Amazon.com are great options because they are lightweight, come in a variety of colors, and you can’t beat the price ($18).
I’ve had these Turkish towels for awhile and they have been through the wash more times than I can count. Turkish towels seem to somehow get softer with each wash. The one possible drawback I’ve found with the “Nature is Gift Turkish Towels” is that after washing a few times, some of the knots on the end of the tassels came loose. That doesn’t bother me, however, because it gives the towel a more natural feel in my opinion.
