What to look for in a beach bag
Whether you want to carry a book and a towel or gear for the whole family, you'll need a bag that can carry what you need. If electronics are part of your beach routine, you'll also need a bag with a waterproof inner pocket (or include a separate waterproof bag). Of course, if you want to carry cold drinks or food, a bag with an insulated section is a must.
Canvas is the most traditional material for beach bags, being durable and offering a classic aesthetic. Straw bags are a close second in terms of style and function. If you need a waterproof bag, look for one made of nylon or polyester. Other materials offer additional benefits, such as sand-resistant silicone. Also watch out for carry handles - woven handles look great, but can bite into your shoulders or hands if you drag your bag around for long periods of time, while flat cloth or canvas handles are both durable and comfortable.
Pockets are an : external pockets hold liquid containers upright and keep wet sand items separated. Inside pockets help hide and protect your valuables while keeping them easily accessible so you can easily reach your car keys or phone when your hands are full. For added security, consider pockets with zippers or at least snap closures, rather than separate slots.
Some of the most stylish beach bags are handheld: think of the most iconic, timeless straw bag silhouettes. However, these aren't always the most practical, as they will tie up at least one hand to carry. If you're traveling with kids - or carrying an iced coffee or smartphone - you'll probably want a tote bag with a shoulder or crossbody strap.

Several reviewers praised this as "the perfect beach bag" for its size, sturdiness and appearance. "It's super cute!" One reviewer said. Another wrote, "It's sturdy and stands up tall and well when empty, which is exactly what I wanted." This is the bag for you, "Top quality and very large."
This stylish bag was a reviewer favorite, despite its minimalist design. One shopper concluded, "Why do I like this bag so much?! It's light enough. It's pretty enough. It's spacious enough. It's affordable. But most importantly, it's functional." The waterproof material makes it a practical choice, and reviewers praise its handle, which is wide enough to fit comfortably on your arm. "This bag is perfect for the beach. I use it when I'm on vacation. It has lots of room to stand up to the sand and the ocean," wrote one reviewer.
This bag is perfect for those who want to keep their belongings dry. "I bought two for my family of eight as beach totes. We have two kids in diapers and two baby formulas. So, we used a bag for diapers at the beach - formula, bottles, burp cloths, etc. It's nice to know that none of this stuff gets wet or turns to sand!" One reviewer said. "We used the other one as a snack bag. It was clear and nice to know we could easily see what we were trying to find." Another reviewer noted the quality of the plastic: "Unlike some other clear plastic bags, this one is beautifully designed and can easily hold items because of its curvature. It is comfortable to carry because of its wide shoulder strap. It is reasonably priced. I ordered some extra so I can store seasonal items and be able to easily identify them when I need to access them. It is thick but flexible and very durable."
