Summer essentials like swimmers and sunglasses are easy to keep stylish, but what about the often forgotten beach towel?  Don’t let it take a back seat in the style stakes – check out our beach towel round up. 

Morgan and Finch watermelon poncho

These Morgan & Finch ponchos will be perfect to slip on your child after a quick dip at the beach. Each of the four cotton ponchos have an embroidered design on the front – my favourite is the super cute watermelon theme. With an abundance of beautiful beach towels to choose from too, you and the whole family will be ready to hit the beach in style. They’re available at Bed Bath N’ Table with prices starting at $26.

Adairs poncho

Have a water baby on your hands? You won’t struggle to get them out of the water at home time, with these Hooded Poncho Pals. They’re from Adairs, who also have a great range of bright and colourful kids’ beach towels. You can pick them all up online, with prices beginning at $17.95.cotton on towel

Roll up and go with one of Cotton On’s four patterned beach towels, each equipped with a handy tie up string. Your little one will love drying off with stripes and crosses, lobsters and lots of stylish summer fun prints. Also an option are their handy beach buddy towels. Complete with a hood, they double as piece of clothing to throw over their swimmers and a towel to dry off with. All are priced at $24.95 and available from Cotton On Kids.

target towels

Target have some seriously summer inspired beach towels, like their bright yellow striped pool towel which is a personal favourite.  Having a princess obsessed four-year-old I feel compelled to mention Target’s Cinderella and Frozen themed ponchos that I am sure would put a smile on the face of any small princess. Buy them directly from Target where prices start at $12.

country road 3

Snuggling up in a big cosy towel will be the perfect way to end a day at the beach. Made from 100 per cent cotton, these famous Country Road beach towels have caught our eye here at Babyology with their stunning colours, prints and over-sized logos. All are priced at $44.95 and available from Country Road.

Cosi towels

A towel that can double as a bath towel and beach towel is a winner in my book. With artful prints and bright captivating colours, no one will ever guess your little one is drying off with a bath towel. These generously sized cotton towels are perfect to take from bath to beach or pool. Their reversible design makes them even more stylish, with a block of grey on one side and a playful print on the other. You can purchase them from Cosi Towels for $69.

Sunny Life Ice-cream towel

All the ice-cream your little one could want on one towel will keep them happy this summer. The sweet ice-cream themed Clifton towel is 100 per cent cotton and will set you back $39.95 from Sunny Life.


Off for a quick dip? No need to bring your beach bag when you can borrow the handy hidden pocket on your child’s towel. Wonga Road’s Charlie towel has a hidden zip pocket perfect for your keys, phone or any other necessities, and will make your trip to the beach a lot easier. These smart and stylish cotton towels are from Wonga Road for $34.95.

Turkish towel

Last but not least, we end with Heavenlee Swim and their fashionably striped Turkish towels, which are fast becoming the next big thing on the beach. The towels are pure cotton, fast drying and very lightweight, but the best part is that they double as a beach wrap and sarong. Heavenlee Swim stock these in child and adult sizes and prices start at $25.
