When you head to the beach or pool, you know a purse just isn’t going to cut it. It could get wet, and thus, ruined. Your purse probably isn’t big enough to put a towel, a change of clothes, drinks, snacks and your essentials in either. If you’re a frequent beachgoer or just want to look super stylish when you do finally hit the sand, you should treat yourself to a beach bag. Beach bags are durable and designed to survive in the sun, sand and water. We rounded up the best beach bags for you.
We selected three very different bags. Our first pick is made out of mesh. It might not be the one most stylish option of the bunch, but it is practical if you have been designated as the person who carries everything. Although no one enjoys being the pack mule, this lightweight bag will make it a little bit easier. Another one of our picks is perfect for fashionistas who stay on-trend. This bag is the perfect polyester tie-dye to display at the beach. And the final option screams bohemian. If you consider yourself a hippie, you’ll love this brightly patterned bag. Check out all of our options below.
