BEACH HATS & VISORS
Besides the style points, there is one main goal to wearing a beach hat: sun protection. On most days, the beach leaves you relatively exposed to direct sunlight. The reflection of the water adds to the brightness and ease of sunburn experienced by patrons. A hat or visor on top of sunscreen can help keep the face shaded and cool.
Some hats are designed for wear strictly on land, like large straw hats and caps. They will give you the shielding needed, but typically do not stay on it the wearer goes in the water. Other hats come with special closure features and water-repellent material to keep the head-ware on the head despite the waves. Even if you prefer to take off a hat for the water, most will stay on even if the beach is windy with a secure drawstring or back-clip.
