When considering choices for the best beach bag, it helps to keep things lightweight as much as possible. Strong fabrics like canvas work well for the beach, but also other walks of life as it’s normally the go to choice for totes. Linen and mesh make nice trendy, seasonal choices if you’re one to match you bag with your fit, but there’s also something to be said about woven straw bags. It genuinely channels that big Summer energy you’re looking for while sunbathing or cooling off at the beach.

Also. Even if you can, no one wants to be painstakingly removing granules of sand, one by one, from a leather bag after a long day by the sea. It always helps to have some beach-ready backup.

Choosing the right beach sack doesn’t have to be overly complicated or precarious decision, chances are you’re already a seasoned vet at frequenting the beach and some of you may even have a kit ready to go at a moments notice.

It’s never too late to switch things up and add a modern beach bag into your rotation for the remainder of Summer. From luxurious Loewe bags to do-it-all totes from NEIGHBORHOOD, we’ve selected a few bags to upgrade your beach experience.
