Whether your style would most suit a wicker basket or an oversized tote - we've hand-picked a selection of our favourite beach bags from the high street this season so you can stay in tune with what's in fashion and informed of what's out there. Classic, staple colours and styles will go with almost anything whilst beach bags with a pop of colour will brighten up your beachwear.
If you're a stippler for security and need the reassurance of secure, zipped pockets, then we've found designs with secretly tucked away pockets to keep your money under wraps on the beach.
Or, if you like to leave your villa or hotel feeling carefree, so leave your valuables at home, then wicker baskets and open designs will be the perfect mule for your day-on-the-beach essentials.
If you, like many of us, are family donkey, and have to carry the suncream, snacks and spades on behalf of the whole family, beach bags that are made with comfort and size in mind are definitely the ones for you. This ombre-effect bag from La Redoute, £17.50, is even stylish enough to use when you land back in the UK.
