I have heard of the brand and its popular feature but I haven’t really thought of getting one myself since it’s based from miles away from where I am but now that I have one, I thought to myself, “Why didn’t I get this sooner?” It’s the perfect companion not just for the beach but on all of your adventures, and I will tell you why.
If you haven’t heard of Tesalate yet, well, I’m here to break it down for you.
A proudly Australian-designed brand, Tesalate has basically blew up worldwide for its sand free beach towel. Apart from using it at the beach, their fans use Tesalate sand-free towels for their workouts, yoga and backyard picnics. Some even use it as home accents and blankets. All because of its fast-drying, super absorbent, compact and light feature that’s perfect for just about any adventure!
The brand has dominated the U.S. and European markets as well. In fact, their Facebook page has exploded to close to a million organic members. As far as customer feedback is concerned, the average rating of their reviews is 4.9 stars. They’ve got over 20,000 organic reviews to date which you can read on their website. They are by far, the most reviewed towel in the world.
So, what makes this beach towel special?
Tesalate is built with their high-performance AbsorbLite™ fabric that is specifically engineered to deliver sand-free, ultra-absorbent, super-compact and rapid-dry tech for simply better beach days.

What else do they have?
A workout towel!! Their sand-free towels have been featured in multi-media platforms all around the world and it inspired them to introduce an anti-bacterial, odour-free workout towel to encourage people to stay fit anytime, anywhere. It also has the same bold and vibrant vibe that their sand-free towels are known for.
They use zinc in the construction of the workout towel fabric and this acts as an antibacterial agent. Unlike other antimicrobial substances such as silver and copper, zinc-based additives are broad spectrum antimicrobials. This means they are effective against not just bacteria but also the growth of fungi including algae, mold and mildew that causes odour build up. You can find them here.
Do they ship worldwide?
Yes!! I am based in Cebu, Philippines and that is like what, 2,745 miles away from Australia. I placed my order on a Tuesday and it arrived Tuesday the next week which I did not expect at all! Especially because Cebu is provincial. Orders from abroad usually takes two weeks to arrive here the earliest so I was totally surprised that it only took about a week to arrive. Not bad at all!
It came with the DHL courier package – the courier used for international shipping. Inside, the Telasate has their own matte finish packaging which I find very fancy. I opened the package and the towel comes with a care card, a thank you card and a drawstring bag which is really great because the towel has a place of its own especially when you go out on an adventure!
They have a lot of cute patterns to choose from but I got the Under The Canopy beach towel in 63 x 31 inches. Here are a few prints that I adore too:
I initially didn’t know about this but the towel has a hanging hook which comes very handy. I like that the towel can also be reversible so this way you actually have two options to work with. The triangular b&w pattern on the back is a standard so whatever print you purchase, it has that pattern on the back.Now the fun part. This wouldn’t be a review without trying and testing them out right?
What I love about in my city is that the beaches are just a drive away from the city. This time we went to Dalaguete to visit my sister who is currently there. This is also my chance to test my new Tesalate towel which I am very excited to use!
Is it really sand-free?? Absolutely yes! I layed it out on the beach shore to have our spot on the beach and this was the time I figured, “why didn’t I have this sooner?” the best part was when it’s packing time because it’s just easy to dust off the sand, fold and keep inside the drawstring bag and viola! Doesn’t even take too much space in your getaway bag! No wonder they say this is the world’s leading beach towel because it is!
I have another Airbnb staycation next weekend and I can’t wait to bring this along with me again because we will be on an adventure! Make sure to follow me on Instagram so you can see me use this towel in action. You may also follow Tesalate’s Instagram page and visit their website Tesalate.com to get your own towel!
Ohhhh!! and did I mention it’s FREE SHIPPING? Yep. you’re welcome 😉
