Heading to the beach anytime soon? Do you have your beach bag sorted? You absolutely need to get one before you head off on holiday - I’m not exaggerating when I say it’ll make the whole experience better!

A beach bag helps you keep all your belongings dry, safe and handy in one place. It also protects your essentials from sand, water, and sun damage. If you’ve yet to buy one, or you’re looking for something new for your 2023 beach holiday, take a look at Amazon, which has so many great designs available with speedy delivery.

What should you look for in a good beach bag? It should be spacious enough to fit all your beach essentials including sunscreen, towels, water bottles, sunglasses, hats, and maybe even a great book to get lost in while you relax in the sun. 

You might want a durable straw bag, a canvas bag or a waterproof design. Many bags also come with zip inside pockets for extra security for your valuables, or an inner pouch which is attached to the main beach bag.

I used it as a beach bag for my recent vacation, I had two pairs of water shoes, 2 adult towels, bottles of water and essentials and it was so easy to carry.

  • DonDon large beach bag

    DonDon large beach bag

    Top review: “Great sized bag for all your pool/beach essentials. Can easily fit 3 rolled beach towels, books, sun tan lotion and small football! Zip top adds a bit more security and the wee purse is ideal for AirPods/charging packs or keeping loose change together. Would recommend retrying the straps though. The know was fairly low down and could easily come loose - easy fix though.”

    With just short of 7k positive reviews, this is one of Amazon’s top-rated beach bags - and it’s easy to see why. It’s enormous, has a zip fastening and comes with a valuables pouch.

  • Hibala woven large beach bag

    Top review: “This bag is so nice. The size is a large tote which can fit many things. The bag isn’t small at all very big. Very nice quality and very cute design and style. This bag can be used for the beach or as a summer and spring daily bag.”

    This beach bag definitely has a designer look - you could easily mistake it for a Gucci tote if you didn’t know better! It has a waterproof lining and plenty of room for all your essentials.

  • KALIDI Mesh Tote Bag

    KALIDI Mesh Tote Bag

    Top review: “I bought this beach bag after hunting for one for absolute ages. It easily holds a book, sunglasses, sun cream, water bottle and two towels so very roomy. There’s a zipped pocket in the bag so you don’t lose your keys or iPod, etc. the only downside is the contents of the pocket can be seen through the weave of the bag. Can be carried on the shoulder or by hand so great all round. Also, it has a plus side as it can be taken to the supermarket whilst on holiday so has more use than just a beach bag. I like it so much, I am going to buy another just to keep in my car boot as it is very useful.”

    How chic is this mesh beach bag? And the price is incredible! It’s made of durable anti-tear nylon and it’s super roomy. It has an interior zip pocket for valuables and is available in ten different colours.

  • Lingsfire canvas tote beach bag

    Lingsfire canvas tote beach bag

    Top review: “Great sized bag - big enough for essentials and because of the shape it's easy to find things inside. There's no zip if that's what you're looking for but the shoulder strap is long enough to fit comfortably under your arm so it's secure.”

    This sturdy bag scores top for style and structure - it has a main compartment which closes via three magnetic buttons and an internal open slot pocket and zipper pocket. It’s made of easy-to-clean canvas and comes in six different colours.

  • Zrakris Tote bag

    Zrakris Tote bag

    Top review: “Fantastic bag that I took away for a work trip and it was perfect. Easy to find all my things inside and the shoulder strap is super comfortable. It looks super stylish as well. 10/10.”

    We couldn’t help but think of Marc Jacobs’ signature tote when we saw this canvas beach bag. It features a strap as well as handles and is a good medium size - probably not one to fit your towel in, but great for carrying your other essentials.

  • DKIIL NOIYB Straw Shoulder Bag For Women

    DKIIL NOIYB Straw Shoulder Bag For Women

    Top review: “Love this bag, especially the fact that it has a zip so all my stuff doesn't fall out, and it has a little pocket on the inside. It's the perfect size, I didn't want it too big and wanted to carry my beach towel separately... all my other bits fitted in here perfectly.”

    If you’re after a medium size, straw boho-style bag, this one is great. It comes in a number of different styles and shades and features an inside zip compartment.
