Wide Brim Swim Hat - Magnetic Island
"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 vibrant unisex 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!
This hat looks great worn with one of our swimsuits in the same print. Styles available for girls, babies, boys & teens.
Snorkelling or diving off beautiful Magnetic Island in tropical Queensland, you might be lucky enough to come across one of the Great Barrier Reef’s most beautiful fish – the magnetic Mandarin Fish. This little dragonet with its psychedelic colours is scale-less and shy, with a lifespan of 10-15 years; it is also known for its entertaining courtship dance!
The print features beautifully hand-drawn Mandarin Fish amidst different-coloured Great Barrier Reef coral. Its gorgeous background colour is a cobalt blue.
This swim hat offers premium sun protection in style, is easy to keep clean and looks adorable on reef-loving boys & girls!

I purchased this hat as I was having trouble finding a swimming hat large enough to fit my child’s head, that still had a tie on it to keep it on in the boat. It’s great quality, the brim doesn’t flop and I love the designs. I was so happy with my purchase I ended up buying one for my little one as well. Customer service was above and beyond when I made contact prior to service to ensure it would fit.
We just received our first order in time for Christmas and we absolutely LOVE them! Great designs and perfect sun coverage. They’ll be wonderful for my little girl in the sun around Bondi beach 🏖
Love these swimsuits and hats for their gorgeous prints and fantastic fit... super cute all round! Thanks for your great customer service too :-)
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.

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.
