Why not update your beach bag this resort season? After all, it’s probably the hardest working piece in your entire holiday wardrobe! Whether you like a roomy hold-all or a light and compact over-the-shoulder, we’ve picked out something for everyone in this selection…

Trusty Tote

Keep it classic with a roomy tote from Lands’ End. Big enough for all your beach-day belongings, plus it’s strong, durable and exceptionally reliable – this bag will go with you every summer, forever more!

Big and Bold Hold-All

Fold it up and let it out, this Lexon Peanut Duffel Bag is large and lightweight and in a zingy shade of orangeade. It has a tough zip fastening and can be carried by a broad strap or chunky handles. Lovely looking and definitely durable, we love its peanut-shaped packing pouch for easy storage when you’re not on vacation.

Nautical Nylon

A super-tough but lightweight nylon bag from Birdwell to stuff all the family’s beach-stuff in! Sling it over your shoulder and you’ll be good to go.


Although it’s classed as a weekender bag, this olive green number by Saturdays NYC will double-up just fine to cart a couple of towels, water bottles, goggles, flippers, spade and a magazine to the beach this summer.

Just Jute

Choose a natural-fibre, eco-friendly option with the Apolis Jute Market Bag. With its fully waterproofed lining and short handles, it’s a great bag to grab for a day on the sand. Also take a look at this lovely tote by The Beach People – light and leather-handled for a smart yet laidback look!

Classic Denim

You can always rely on Ralph Lauren to offer-up something classic, clean and understated. This Indigo Market Tote is simple, neutral and hardwearing in trusty denim.

Rainbow Stripes

Embrance a light and summery look with this stripy tote by Madewell. Made from thick canvas with leather handles, it’s strong and roomy enough to hold everything you need for a day at the beach.

Tough Tarpaulin

Freitag’s tote bag (in heaps of different colours) is made from sturdy, waterproofed and recycled tarpaulin making this one a brilliant buy for throwing your wet swimwear into, post-beach. It’s got an internal storage compartment too to stow keys, money and other bits and pieces.

Convertible Carry-On

This primary-red Saint Luke hold-all doubles as an ideal weekender duffel and bright beach bag. It’s extra roomy with a wide zip opening for dipping in and out of. The co-ordinating pineapple-print lining and removable compartment are fantastic details.
