The Best Beach Bag for Under $25

With summer around the corner, many of us are optimistically planning some time in the sun. So today, I thought I would share one of my favorite finds – the beach bag to end all beach bags.

We are planning on a social-distancing-friendly trip to the beach once virtual learning wraps up, to give the kids and us a much-needed breather.

Because it’s going to take us 10 hours by car, I’ve been throwing myself into preparing for not only the week away but a long drive with cranky kids.

I plan on bringing only the essentials, but with a teenager, a ten-year-old, and a toddler, we don’t travel light.

As I started to pull out all of our summer gear, I realized my heavy boat and totes were going to take up too much room in the car. So I went off to find a solution and landed on this incredibly affordable option.

At first, I was looking for something both stylish and practical – Instagram-worthy, if you will. Then I landed on this oversized, mesh bag with zipper compartments and outside pockets and was sold. 

There is a lot to love about this, and I will eventually update this post with a video of everything it holds, but for now, if you need a beach or pool bag, pick this up. 

First off, it’s huge. You can fit about eight large beach towels rolled up, and the outside pockets fit everything from flip-flops to magazines, to small beach toys.

There is an inside zip top pocket to keep your keys, phone and wallet dry and save. 

The bottom is waterproof so no worrying about your things getting damp. 

And the best – it folds up. So it doesn’t take up any room at all. 

I bought two, one for towels and essentials and one for all the baby beach toys.

Hi, love the beach bag. Will you please find and suggest a washable workout bag that can hold weights, a towel, extra clothes and a yoga mat? Small boutique gyms will require each client to bring his/her own workout gear.

Thank you! I appreciate your recommendations!
