What to buy: Recommended shops:
- Nature et Decouverte (www.natureetdecouvertes.com/pages/gener/index.asp). If you are a big fan of nature, gardening.
- Disney Store. If you love Disney characters.
- Mango. Women's wear.
What to pay: It will depend on what you'll buy obviously.
Topless sunbathing is considered acceptable on the beaches of France.
Even though a lot of French women frequently wear lingerie thong, you rarely see them wearing bikini thong on the beach.
The Cap 3000 beach is pebbly, so it's not very comfortable to walk or sunbathe. Watch out for broken bottle glass, pieces of wood and dog "gifts" (i.e. crap).
I suck for sports but here on this beach you can watch people playing beach volleyball, go water skiing, kitesurfing, sailing, etc...
