Find the best swim goggles for you with our handy guide. Discover kids goggles perfect for swimming lessons, racing or even for a holiday dip; whatever you need, there's be a swim goggle for you!

Any child under three should not be wearing goggles, so for younger children, it's good to encourage them to learn without, merely moving them below the water to get them used to it. Once your child is over three, goggles can be useful and are not harmful, as long as you find the right ones for them.

When buying goggles, there are a few things to remember. Based on the frequency your child swims, there are different options. If you are just using these on holidays, you need reliable suction so it does not hurt your child's face when they jump in the pool, and UV protection for time spent out in the sun. If using goggles for lessons or competitively, you need to ensure they fit comfortably. You need goggles with anti-fogging technologies for longer use, so the more technical goggles are definitely a good buy for you.
