Beach Totes That Keep Your Goods Sand-Free, And Don't Scream 'Tourist'

Beach bags are tricky. Finding the right one can be a needle-in-the-haystack search, especially if you don’t want a print that screams “vacation”.  You want a bag that will protect your valuables, look cute, and still be roomy enough for sunscreen, a change of clothes, and the second installment of Twilight (or that intellectually stimulating book you’ve been meaning to read).

Check out our picks below and be beach-ready in time for Memorial Day.

1. With its hobo shape (or lack thereof), you can stuff almost anything into American Apparel’s Cotton Canvas Tote ($20, multiple colors). The bag also comes with a zippered side pocket which is perfect for keeping your cell phone and other valuables handy.


2. For a slightly more refined option, try Tory Burch’s Tory Tote ($250). The bag is plenty roomy, and structured enough to double as a purse. I also think the logo and trim are really fun.


3. A classic, colorful straw beach bag, like this tote from Nordstrom ($88), is always a great option. This version is made from hand-woven raffia and closes with a button tab.
