Wearing goggles for swimming is also another important consideration especially for beginner or about to learn swimming. Only few swimmer are able to go underwater if did not wear goggles. However, it is important hint because in general, swimmer needs to wear goggles to comfortably going under the water.

Besides swimwear and also goggles, don't miss out to bring other equipment which is out of the water such as bags, additional shirts, pants, slippers, towel and finally sun block.

You might not know when the towel will be out of stock or the towel facility has been stop for no reason. If you are opt for the more advanced towel for hygiene and convenience purpose, disposable swimming towel could also be another better option.
You may also consider wearing beach wear to heading to swimming activities. However, bring along extra shirts, pants and slippers are for your general insurance for when you might need it. For hassle free enjoyment swimming, apply sunblock is a great way to protect your skin from sun burn that could damage your skin. The skin could be affected if your skin expose to the sun too much due to the UV radiation. Any sunblock with normal SPF 30 will do the tricks. Apply sunblock to protect your skin is better than no protection.
