We expect a lot from our beach bags. They need to be big enough to carry all our things, they need to be able to handle the elements (namely, sand), and they need to look really good while doing it. There’s no use buying a “meh” beach bag when you can get yourself something you’ll actually want to tote around—whether you’re at the beach or a sidewalk cafe. So, without further ado, meet the 12 beach bags that you’ll still want to carry well after beach season is over.
Why not get yourself a bag you’ll use on the regular, but also happens to be brilliant at holding all your beach things?
