Wide Brim Swim Hat - Lady Elliot

$29.00

"The best hat for our red-headed granddaughter. She happily wears it as long as needed and it stays on in the wind too." - Sue R

This beautiful wide-brim sun / swim hat is designed to offer full-coverage across the scalp and ears, and is double-layered for extra protection against harmful UV rays.

The polyester-blend fabric is silky-soft, durable for use in chlorine.

An adjustable under-neck tie ensures that the hat will stay on in wind and water!

Designed to match our Lady Elliot Swimsuit for babies or girls, this swim hat offers premium sun protection in style!


Lady Elliot Island, the southernmost coral cay of the Great Barrier Reef and nesting site of the loggerhead turtle, is the kind of place that most people can only dream of visiting... let us take you there to spot the loggerhead turtle hatchlings (just like the ones featured on this pattern!) as they scurry down the sand and into the beautiful lagoon that surrounds this magnificent jewel off the coast of Bargara, home of Tribe Tropical.

$1 from all direct sales of this print will be donated to the Mon Repos Turtle Centre.

The loggerhead turtle is an endangered species; successful breeding at Mon Repos is vital to their survival.
