The Best Large Canvas Beach Tote Bags

A SPACIOUS, TOUGH CANVAS, WATERPROOF TOTE BAG is the perfect bag for the beach

A day on the beach can involve toting a lot of stuff a fairly long way. You need to be able to take all the essentials such as sunnies, SPF and towels, plus extras such as snacks, reading material, extra clothes and so on. It’s a no-brainer that you need a fair amount of space in a beach bag.

Sand and sea-water can wreak havoc on your beach bag, so it is important to have a tough bag made of virtually indestructible fabric that can withstand long summer trips to your favourite coastal haunts.

A waterproof bag with a zip closure and strong handles as well as a cross-body strap, for ease of carrying,  would also be good.

How about a bag that is totally eye-catching and beautifully stylish, as well as being an iconic Australian beach bag.

'The best of all worlds' I'd say.

But lets not forget about South Africa. With all the stunning beaches there, and winter on the wane, it is time to invest in summer bags or rather ONE summer bag that can serve many purposes.

THE WILD THINGS LIFESTYLE TOTE BAG completely fits the bill here.

The tough, waterproof factor COMRISES;

A canvas  exterior treated for water resistance and coated internally with waterproof pvc for added strenght and durabiltiy.

A waterproof lining internally.

'Wet towels and swimwear and other damp items can be placed in the spacious main section whilst dry items such as magazines, clothing etc can be separated into the large internal pocket.

Precious items such as jewellery and glasses can be zipped into the zip internal pocket and phones and car keys can be zipped into the external zip pocket for easy access.

Wet and dry - all completely separate.

There is also a bottle pocket for your drink, and plenty of space for snacks.

Zip it all up and off you go!

The detachable cross-body strap allows you to be hands-free so that you can pick up other items besides your beach bag, such as a large sun umbrella or small child and take them along with you.

If that's not super-organised, then I dont know what is.

Once back at home or the car, you can dump all your beach gear, fill your bag with other stuff and head off to the mall or gym or to a friend for tea. 

Be the envy of your friends and other beach people with your Wild Things tote bag which is a work of art, printed with Australian and South African wildflower photography.
