How to keep the kids entertained on the south of Île de Ré
Kids’ clubs for all ages
You’ll find plenty of things to keep the kids busy on a camping holiday to this part of western France. When they’ve tired of exploring the island and playing on the beach there’s a host of activities to take part in at the Sunêlia campsite near La Rochelle. The heated swimming pool is perfect for little ones, while older children can run and play on the multi-sports field or take a dip in the water park. We offer a range of kids’ clubs, run by qualified childcare staff and geared towards the child’s age so they’ll never get bored. Babies from 3 months can spend the day at the mini crèche, while mum and dad enjoy some time out.
Little ones aged 4-5 will love a day or two at the Mini-Sunny Club, where they’ll build tree houses, play games and make new friends. The 6-11 age group can experience beach sports, theatre, games and lots more fun activities. Older children are never too old for a club, from sports to fun in the pool, dance parties or just sharing a pizza – much cooler than spending time with the parents!
Things to do on Île de Ré island for kids
As with most French holiday locations, the Île de Ré is child-friendly, which makes for a great family camping holiday by the sea. Why not introduce your children to the delicious French food served in the local restaurants and teach them about the magnificent cuisine of this region?
Try the harbour town of Rivedoux Plage for freshly caught local seafood or traditional French cuisine. There are miles of countryside to explore, with salt marshes, woodland and plenty of gentle walking trails. Hiring a bike is a must and a great way to find out more about the island together as a family. For a spot of history make your way to the Phare des Baleines lighthouse where older children can climb the steps to the top.

A visit to the idyllic village of La Flotte, or Ars en Ré, classed as one of the most beautiful villages in France is the perfect way to while away a few hours wandering around the narrow streets.
