For Cap d’Agde Beach

Waterproof Containers – These plastic containers are a very simple idea and are an incredibly useful item. Wondering where you can keep your keys, cigarettes, a credit card and other items when you are at one of the foam parties or going for a walk along the beach. These waterproof containers are the answer and you will see many people using them in the resort.

Boca Clips – Another item would is also on my packing list for Cap d’Agde but also for other ships as well (we try and go on one cruise a year also) is the Boca Clips! You might not have heard of these but they are basically pegs which are brilliant for stopping the beach towel from continually sliding when you lay on it. A very simply idea and yet makes a day on the beach that much better.

Kindle – For a resort such as Cap a Kindle is a fantastic idea and you will see many people on the beach using one. In order to travel light and have a large number of books to choose from on the one device, this is a wonderful item I always take with me on trips to Cap d’Agde. It also means I can travel without the need for luggage and thus also cut flights costs each summer.
