Honeymooning in Hawaii as we recently did in May, we needed a durable beach bag to tote around our beach mat, sunscreen and magazines. When we arrived for our first day in the islands, a day on Oahu, we stopped at what is perhaps the best known store in Hawaii, Hilo Hattie's, to pick up a bag.
The selection was plentiful. Did we want one that marked us as tourists, or a plain one that would help us fit in? I decided we were obvious tourists, so we went with a hibiscus print beach bag that would remind us of Hawaii even back here on the East Coast, when at the Jersey Shore.
For under $10, this bag was a steal (as far as vacation prices go!). On top of that, Hilo Hattie's has numerous locations on most of the Hawaiian islands and has the best selection around. The aloha spirit you are greeted with is a nice change from mainland retailers, too!
Here's the bag we got:
