Holiday Essentials: The Beach Bag Edit

It's the thing you'll probably forget, but (as you'll quickly discover), quite possibly the thing you need the most.

You're all ready to head down to the beach - perfectly poised with those new sunglasses and sandals - but suddenly realise your plush leather handbag might not fare so well against the sand, sea and ocean breeze.

A beach bag needs to be high on your packing list for any holiday. Whether floral, colourblock or a hint of metallic is more your style, our selection leaves plenty of room for towels, sand-encrusted sandwiches and that book you can't wait to dig into.
