We’re well into summer, and if you’re lucky, you might just have a beach vacation in your future. Or, if you’re like me and live relatively near the beach (~humble brag~), you’re sure to be spending plenty of time on the sand this season. And, as everyone should know, there’s one thing—other than, like, a towel and sunscreen, I guess—that you seriously need for any trip to the shore: a cute beach bag. I don’t make the rules, folks. (OK, in this case, I kind of did make the rule. But just go with it.) Beach bags are a quintessential part of any summer adventure—especially when that adventure involves sun, sand, water and carrying around a lot of shit.
I am a self-admitted beach bag addict. I have several different beach bags strewn throughout my bedroom. I do, of course, have one beach bag I use the most (especially when I’m headed to the pool at my apartment complex) because it holds so much stuff. Depending on who you are as a person, your beach bag need not be as large the one I like to use. However much of a beach and pool supplies hoarder you are, though, every trip to the water deserves a cute bag in which to hold everything. From sunscreen and towels to books and headphones, there are so many things you don’t realize you’re going to want to bring to beach or pool with you. That’s why having cute beach bags is truly the cherry on top of any vacay.
To help aid you in the search for the ~perfect beach bag~, I rounded up some of my absolute favorite ones on offer right now. From totally Instagrammable woven bags to straw bags you’ll probably want to also carry as a purse, there are so! many! cute! beach! bags! Welcome to the rest of your summer, baby.
