Choose the Perfect Beach Bag

Tote Beach Bag

Whether you’re gearing up for a day trip to your local beach or preparing for a long weekend at Noosa, having a trusty beach bag that can hold all of your important items can make your adventure to the waves oh so easy!

There are lots of options when it comes to shopping for a summer beach bag, which means that finding the best beach tote isn’t always an easy task.

A beach bag needs to be waterproof, strong, light, practical, eco-friendly and most importantly complete your summer outfit. Here are a few pointers to keep in mind while picking the perfect beach bag.

1. Pick the right beach bag size

It's a well known fact that using a larger bag at the beach really comes in handy. It not only has to be big enough to carry all your stuff, but it needs to be large enough to fit everyone else's stuff as well.

From towels, kids beach toys, sunscreen, zinc, phones and swimmers - make sure you choose a beach bag is is big enough and strong enough to carry all the essentials.

2. Choose a natural and durable material

There are so many options when it comes to choosing beach bag fabrics and materials. From canvas to cotton, straw and seagrass - it is important you choose a material that is waterproof, strong and durable.

Choosing an eco-friendly option like seagrass or straw is also highly desirable even though they may be a little more pricey. Our fav material for the planet is seagrass which is 100% natural, sustainable and made from a water plant that is fast growing and plentiful.

3. Choose the right style and colour

When picking the perfect beach bag for you, it’s mainly down to a choice of colour and style. Tote bags are most common as they’re large and can fit plenty of items in, including a towel.

Don’t restrict yourself to neutrals when buying a beach bag. A beach holiday means you can indulge in a vast colour palette. But in our opinion natural colours are the way to go at the beach.

If you find you end up bringing half the beach back with you choose an open-weave design so you won't need to worry about wet towels or a bag full of sand - just give the tote beach bag a light tap and the sand will flow right through.

Seagrass Beach Bags

Being a natural plant, seagrass is a very green option as it is both sustainable and biodegradable. Seagrass is sustainably harvested from long reeds that are dried in the sun, handwoven into long yarns and then finally made into beautiful eco-friendly bags.

This material is strong and durable and easy to clean. In most cases, seagrass is not dyed and is simply left as is. The variety of natural colours seen in seagrass range from khaki tan to sage green.

Seagrass is highly stain-resistant which makes it the perfect material for the beach. The natural wax coating on seagrass fibres helps prevent dirt from settling in.

Our seagrass bags are beautiful, lightweight and sturdy. They're handmade and are perfect for beach trips, picnics or Sunday markets.
