20 of the best beach bags

Remember the sun? You know, that round, yellow thing in the sky? Well, in other countries, especially in Southern Europe, they have a lot of it. Not only that, they have some of the most beautiful beaches, which we regularly dream about when it's cold and raining in the UK (we do love a good weather moan).

So if, like us, you're fantasising about visiting warmer climes, or you have, in fact, booked your summer holiday to somewhere hot then you know you'll need a proper beach bag.

That's right, you can't go carting around that fashion forward leather backpack you have onto the beach. Not just because you don't want to be finding bits of sand stuck to that important document you need to give to your boss, weeks after you get back, but because you need to fit a lot of 'stuff' in there.

You need space for books, a kindle, magazines, suncream, water, sunglasses, as well as any food you'll be needing, so you don't have to move too far during the day. With that in mind, we've compiled some of the chicest and most fun holiday totes.
