Behold, The 20 Best Beach Bags You Can Carry All Summer Long



You know a great beach bag when you see it: They sit in that sweet spot between a Mary Poppins bag and your chicest summertime bag. The best beach bags are deceivingly large, allowing us to carry everything we might want for our oceanside tanning session without overtaking our entire frame. We love both a slouchy carryall as well as a more structured tote bag and don’t pick favorites between a coated canvas, raffia, and woven cotton. While those of the larger variety certainly have to be more durable, we love a mini basket for shorter trips that don’t require quite as many provisions as well.

The bag selection below will take you from the water’s edge to your summertime brunch. We’ve found structured wicker styles, slouchy woven bucket bags, and even totes that can truly take a beating. Shop our favorites just in time for summer below.
