Wide Brim Swim Hat - Lady Elliot
"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.

My daughter loves turtles so was overjoyed to receive her Lady Elliott Swimsuit. Not only is this swimsuit extremely cute it has nappy change clips making toilet trips so much easier than trying to remove a wet cozy. I love that the swimsuits are double lined for extra sun protection and the matching broad brimmed hat means my little girl is totally protected from the harsh Qld sun. I can’t wait to enjoy lots of fun in the sun. They are great quality and feel so nice and soft. Definitely check out Tribe Tropicals range for your little (and big) cherubs!!!
I purchased 4 matching hats and swimwear for our grandchildren and they are just gorgeous! Great efficient and friendly service! Thank you Emily, pleasure doing business with you
My kids wore these swimmers for over 2 years. Not one issue with them, they still have a good year or two in them as well so last 3-4 years. We've had no fade or stretch, no pulling or pilling. Have handed down to friends children as my children outgrew them. Love them so much.
I am really impressed with the level of support the ladies swimsuit provides, even for a larger cup size, which is so hard to find.
Fantastic to wear for any water activity. I love the sun protection and comfort of the swimsuit while surfing, paddleboarding or just chilling at the beach.
Tribe Tropical swimwear is by far the best designed and quality in Australia. The thought process that has gone into these designs, made for comfort, quality and being so sunsafe is a stand out. Each time my daughter wears these they wash up like brand new.

Hi! I’m Emily, mother of 3 little girls and founder of Tribe Tropical.
Growing up I used to dread beach days!
As a red-head with fair skin, growing up in the tropics, I either had to risk being teased by other kids for covering up in a daggy old t-shirt, or end the day sunburnt & in pain.
Having since suffered with countless skin cancer treatments (and further to the loss of my grandfather due to melanoma), I understand the importance of sun protection - I started Tribe Tropical with a desire to protect my family and yours in beautiful, high-quality sun-protective swimwear that people would feel good in & enjoy wearing.
No-one should dread a beach day! I hope to help you to make them fun & burn-free also.
