MEN'S HATS & VISORS
Since you can't take hefty beach umbrellas every step along the shoreline, wearing a hat or visor can provide the shade you need. The beach often exposes you to harsher weather conditions like high, chilly winds or the hot, beating sun. On top of sunscreen, headwear can protect your face from bad wind or sunburn.
Some hats provide shade to the face and back of the neck, like sun hats and most straw hats. Caps and visors keep you from squinting all day long. While most work almost exclusively on land, some hats are designed to stay on in the water for continual protection. Beanies even keep your head warm on cold days—and a select amount include a small visor for shade.
