12 Beach Towels We’re Digging for Summer
Let’s face it — as far as beach essentials go, beach towels might possibly be the most boring. Bathing suits, sun screens, and even beach reads get much more consideration because, after all, that dingy bath towel in the closet is adequate enough, right? Actually, Jetsetters, a true beach towel can make all the difference in a great day by the water: it measures a foot larger than the average towel (so you can actually lie down without sand in your face); it soaks up water more effectively, and generally speaking, it's a lot more fun. From the high end to the affordable, these 12 towels are anything but ordinary.

Gray Malin’s signature aerial beach shots taken around the world are just the thing to get us in the beach-going mood. We love this shot from his Sydney Series.
