The Very Best Beach Bags

Invest in a roomy beach bag to carry all your holiday essentials

The summer’s here and you’re dashing down to the beach or poolside, desperately cramming in your towel, book, ipod, snacks, water (essential) and, of course, you can’t fit it all in. It’s about time you invest in a purpose built beach bag. Designed for all those sunbathing needs – there’ll be plenty of room for all the things you need for a luscious day at the beach or poolside. 

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 water resistant bag from Debenhams has a seperate compartment for all you valuables whilst ensuring everything stays dry by the pool.
