This may well be the best towel you have ever used for the pool or for the beach. Its extra large, lovely to look at, and super comfy. The rayon sarong side is just stunning, the cotton towel side is absorbent and super soft. This sarong towel is great as a towel or as a beach blanket, because it is almost four feet wide and almost six feet long. When you get out of the water and want to dry off and warm up, this sarong towel is the right tool for the job. Perfect as a towel or as a cover up like a regular sarong. It is so plush, it can also be used as a snuggly throw or blanket for the couch on cooler nights. This is a super versatile towel/blanket/cover up/throw that will serve many uses.
